Question 1 of 54

Tell me about your greatest work-related accomplishment.

When sharing your most significant accomplishment, tailor your answer to your audience. According to Jeff Bezos, a valuable lesson he learned while building Amazon was "the path to success is anything but straight. Success can come through iteration: invent, launch, reinvent, relaunch, start over, rinse, repeat, again and again." So when sharing the story of your greatest accomplishment, let them know why this particular success was so significant, and describe the determination it took to get there.
