Analytical skills is a pretty broad topic; however, most interviewers like to hear about your abilities when it comes to analysis of communication, project budgeting, data and diagnostics, important team metrics, or research and reporting. Discuss with the interviewer the types of analytical skills you put to use regularly.
"My analytical skills are put to work most often when it comes to analyzing the performance of my team, and the performance of a project upon wrap up. When we complete a project I will comb through all of the data, results, other reports to see what went very well, and where we could have improved. It's important to me that I review these factors in detail so that we can improve where needed, on the next project."
"I would say that, as a Marketing Communications Manager, my analytical skills come into play most often when we are beginning a new project. I use important data to decide which team players should work on certain aspects of the project. I analyze what our clients need to see, and in what timeline. Also, I break down audience analytics and organize our research needs. My current role is very creative; however, it's also very analytical."
