  1. 1.

    Tell me about your greatest work related accomplishment.

      How to Answer

      Talking about your most significant accomplishment will give the interviewer a firm idea of where you place your values. It will also show the interviewer more about your personality, how you like to be motivated, and how to coach you in the future. It is okay to brag a little bit when answering this question. Show that you are proud of yourself and your career accomplishments!

      Rachelle's Answer

      "The greatest accomplishment in my career was graduating university as an honors student while still working full time in a related field. I was top of my class and working full time. This accomplishment showed me that I could dedicate myself to my career and reach the goals that I set for myself. It felt great to accomplish so much and be recognized for my dedication."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have many accomplishments of which I am proud. Overall, I would say that my greatest work accomplishment is the positive reputation that I have in the software development industry. Tech is a full industry, with many professionals fighting to find their voice. I'm so proud to have carved a distinct career path for myself, despite those challenges."

      "One of the big car companies in Canada asked us to create an online customization ad that used the map API. The challenge was that our ad template solution did not support the key use case. It would require an enhancement to the existing template functionality. Given the importance of the revenue stream, I felt compelled to deeply research how the map API worked within the ad template. When I had a way to implement a solution, I immediately ran a test, and our first demo was sent out within three weeks, and the campaign went live with the solution I suggested. The client was very impressed and decided to add 30% more budget to run the ad for a longer time."

      This achievement sounds like something you should be very proud of - nice work, and great use of the STAR framework when forming your reply (Situation, Task, Action, Result).

      "I am proud of many of my accomplishments. One is establishing a complete development center for our parent company. When I joined a startup, we worked in a make-shift arrangement as a small team in India. Given our quality of work and commitment, I convinced my bosses to establish a full-fledged development center in India as a separate entity under the parent company. Given the quality of our resources and our future potential, my CEO agreed, and we had a complete business set up in India under my leadership. I am very much proud of being a person who is committed to goals. In March, I decided to use my time to learn AWS services and achieve certification as a Solution Architect Associate."

      Terrific! You should be very proud of your accomplishments. At the end of your reply, you may also want to include a qualifying statement of how you will continue these accomplishments should you be hired into this new role.
