TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"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 achievement 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."
Example #2
"As an administrator, I can stand out by continuing to educate myself in unexpected ways, which will benefit my employer. This year alone I committed to additional coursework in Excel, PowerPoint, and QuickBooks. My boss was impressed with my high level of initiative and gave me a raise, along with additional responsibilities, because of it."
Example #3
"My greatest accomplishment was reducing departmental costs by 25% by thoroughly reviewing packing slips and comparing them to invoices and contract terms for accuracy. I then trained my team to do the same so that these savings could become the new status-quo for our department."

Example #4
"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 marketing industry. Marketing 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."
Example #5
"When I was the manager of XYZ shoe store, my location had 100% inventory accuracy for 16 months straight. I created a spreadsheet and implemented regular inventory counts, above and beyond expectations from corporate head office. My tracking method was so successful that the company implemented it nationally."
Example #6
"My greatest career accomplishment is the fact that, in my current company, I gained a promotion faster than anyone in the organization's entire history. I received accolades from the VP of Sales in front of the entire company, which was an extraordinary moment. Exceed expectations, being promoted, and then financially ahead of where I initially expected, was exhilarating."
Example #7
"As a teacher, my greatest accomplishment is in helping students who are falling behind. I have been a teacher for eight years and in that time have found I have at least one student who needs extra attention and mentorship, each year. To mold the lives of my students is the most gratifying action I can take as a teacher."
Example #8
"I would have to say my greatest accomplishment was reducing departmental costs by 15% by thoroughly reviewing the amount of wiring used during electrical repairs and then further training our junior maintenance techs on the importance of aiming for zero waste."
Example #9
"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 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."
Example #10
"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.

Example #11
"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.

Example #12
"The greatest accomplishment in my career was graduating University as an honors student while still working part time in a related field.

Example #13
"Even though I am passionate about baking, I knew that culinary school would be a challenge. In order to achieve my goal of becoming a pastry chef, I gave myself a time frame for school and was realistic about how I would be able to complete the training while working full time. I set a deadline for when I wanted to complete my certification and I worked hard at my internship to learn as much as I could!"
Example #14
"My proudest career accomplishment this far is that I have been able to triple the worth of my client portfolio within one year of working at XYZ firm. I have had incredible leadership and mentors during that time, which has helped me significantly."
Example #15
"I am most proud of how I became an editor and director of films in just 8 years. While this may seem like a long time for some, I have climbed up the ladder and made myself a valuable editor to any film, and I know that working in your company, I will continue to grow."
Example #16
"My most significant career accomplishment comes from the position I am currently in. The company promoted to me to a management level position after just 3 months. The promotion was in response to my strong work ethic and level of reliability. I was very proud of that accomplishment."
Example #17
"I am most proud of how fast I have progressed through the television industry. For someone of my age, I have accomplished so much, and my youth I believe can add a different perspective to this team."
Example #18
"My greatest feelings of accomplishment come from the collective difference that I have been able to make in the lives of others. Each time I have a successful training session, or when I develop a program that makes a difference, I feel that I have added to my overall success as a Training and Development Manager. When I can make employees happier and more productive, it's a significant win. When I can help facilitate a work-environment based on equality and mindfulness, it's incredibly rewarding. Each time an attendee approaches me and thanks me for broadening their perspective, or tells me that they feel encouraged, I feel accomplished. My reputation as a talented Training and Development Manager is my overall greatest accomplishment, and I continue to feel encouraged to do my job with absolute pride and enthusiasm."
Example #19
"My biggest career accomplishment was training very briefly under Alton Brown. It was an incredible experience and I am proud to say that my hard work and dedication is what landed me the opportunity."
Example #20
"I feel most accomplished when I am able to create an event that pleases the guests and makes an impact. I put together a concert for an event that benefitted a non-profit and raised over $10,000. Each of the vendors and the organization and I all worked so well together to make it happen. It felt so good to be able to not just have a fun event but to have something to show for it."
Example #21
"The accomplishment I am the most proud of is managing a very large project on a very tight deadline (... detailed information pertaining to this project, such as the company name, your position title, and so on). As a result, I developed strong project and time management skills that will undoubtedly enable me to thrive in this role."
Example #22
"A workplace challenge I faced was when we did not have enough nurses on staff to cover for call-ins. Because we were short on nurses, it made it difficult to get by if someone was out sick. I spoke to my clinic director about the situation and suggested we bring on some PRN nurses. Now, double shifts aren't necessary. We contact our float nurses, and they can cover."
Example #23
"Flatness is a measurement of the surface deviation relative to its own profile. In order to measure it, I would secure it to a work surface and use a height gauge to measure the total variation. However, the measured surface would need to be secured such that it is parallel to the measuring tool's reference plane, otherwise the data points will need to be adjusted. A CMM is a great way to do this because it uses a computer-controlled probe and a 3D Model as reference, but a height gauge could be used as well if clamped correctly."
Example #24
"My biggest career accomplishment was when I was recognized for being the 'QC Manager of the Year'. I had perfect work attendance and increased profitability by 14% in my first year; a company record. I would love to have the opportunity to do the same for your organization."
