Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Treasurer interview
Although it may be tempting, try not to list your past jobs in chronological order with all of your responsibilities. Your resume maps out your work history, but it's up to you to highlight your greatest accomplishments. As you prepare for this question, keep the qualifications for this role in mind in order to focus on relevant experience. If you don't have a lot of relevant professional experience, take some time to review your work history. Think about those transferable skills that you got from a volunteer role or administrative job. You can share your last jobs, focusing on the three most recent, and then talk about what you learned, your skills and your achievements.
