View Answers
How to Answer
Part of the fun that life brings is that we can daydream about crazy goals that we want to achieve. Everyone has a wild dream some sort. Think about goals that you have set that you know are a bit out-there. You can have some fun with this answer to make yourself memorable; however, if possible, bring your answer back around and relate it to the position for which you are interviewing.

Some near impossible goals may be:

- To run an ultra-marathon in another country
- To win a world record of some sort
- To train yourself to run a sub 6-minute mile
- To enter and win a bodybuilding competition
- To complete five Masters' degrees before you retire
- To travel the entire world
- To go on, and win the show Survivor
- To create zero waste for one year
- To go to space
- To become a millionaire

Many of these examples, as you can see, are goals that you can likely achieve with some serious dedication, drive, and a solid plan. Show the interviewer that you believe in yourself and can create a strategy to get you there. Now you have set the stage to bring in a lofty work-related goal.

Does this job on your resume really relate to this position? Tell me why you believe it does?

Here are some examples of transferable skills:

- Leadership experience

The interviewer wants to know how you go about motivating your coworkers and encouraging a productive work environment. You need to show the hiring authority that you have an interest in adding to their workplace culture versus being an employee who is dragged down when morale is low. Give a recent example of a time when you motivated someone to keep going!

How to Answer
The interviewer is checking to see if you keep up to date on industry related news and trends. Briefly discuss the ways that you keep up to date on your specific industry. This question also offers you an excellent opportunity to ask the interviewer how they like to keep up to date on industry trends. Perhaps you can learn about a helpful new resource.

Question 5 of 20
What was your greatest accomplishment in your most recent position?
View Answers
How to Answer
Hiring authorities are very focused on numbers, percentages, and results. Chances are if you are in for an interview, you highlighted a few successes on your resume that the hiring manager could not resist. Take the time to walk the interviewer through your proudest accomplishment. Extra points if you can include some concrete numbers when discussing the results of your actions.
