How to Answer

The interviewer wants to hear that you have a clear understanding of the job and its responsibilities. You can base your description of daily tasks listed in the job posting. You may not know the right order, but that's where you can always ask for clarification. Explain to the interviewer only what you know for sure and then ask for clarification where you may need it.
