How to Answer

Share an achievement that makes you proud! Try to think of one that demonstrates some of the skills and strengths that would make you an excellent candidate for the job. Your accomplishment could be graduating from high school with honors or getting a scholarship to the college of your choice. Maybe you made a difference in someone's life by volunteering. Think of a way you made a significant impact or share a goal you worked hard to achieve.

Professional Answer Examples
Answer example

"I am the first University graduate in my family. When I completed my degree, my family threw a huge block party to celebrate! It felt amazing and is still one of my biggest drivers. My dad worked two jobs to put me through school, and I plan to be the best I can be in my career, to make him proud."

Answer example

"I am very proud of being self-taught in QuickBooks and Sage. It took me some time and dedication, but I watched every possible online tutorial and YouTube video until I knew I would test at an Intermediate level."

Answer example

"My greatest accomplishment was being the youngest employee to be promoted to a manager position in the history of my current company. I worked hard for this and am proud that my dedication to leadership coursework paid off."

Answer example

"I am most proud of my GPA! I graduated with a 3.7 GPA while working part-time. This accomplishment required a great deal of dedication and long nights from me, but they were 100% worth it."

Answer example

"I was awarded employee of the month in my first month at my very first job out of high school! I always knew that my work ethic was stronger than most, but the affirmation of this was very motivating."

Answer example

"My greatest accomplishment is building my sales book to over 300 accounts. When I started my first sales gig, I was at zero. I worked very hard to build and sustain those relationships."

Answer example

"I am most proud of the fact that I am interviewing for a teaching job at the same high school from which I graduated! Talk about full circle! One other achievement that I am proud of is my volunteer work as an assistant coach for our district's soccer team. The kids were a lot of fun to work with and, although we didn't keep score, it was a great opportunity for me to be a mentor while promoting health and physical activity."

Transportation Manager
Answer example

"The accomplishment I am the most proud of is managing a very large project on a very tight deadline (... further information pertaining to this project, such as the company name, and so on). As a result, I developed strong project and time management skills that will undoubtedly enable me to thrive in this role at your company."

Elementary Teacher
Answer example

"I'm really proud of the time when I improved math scores from a 76% class average to 85%. I did this by integrating math more deeply into the entire curriculum. I had the students read books where there's room to add math into it. For example, I used 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' as a fun way to teach business math. I felt satisfied that my creativity helped my students, and I think that it really helped me grow in terms of curriculum development."

Answer example

"I am most proud of the fact that I have been able to achieve a great career and start a family all at a young age. It took a lot of dedication and long days but I was able to juggle it all."
