Debi Posted August 25, 2005 Share Posted August 25, 2005 I just wanted to share this. I had a job interview by phone yesterday and the interviewer progressed through the usual questions. Its been a while since I interviewed for anything so I am a little rusty anyway. After about 15 minutes, she asked me "What is your greatest accomplishment in the last 2 years?" My gut reaction was to say "staying alive", that is my greatest accomplishment EVER, thus far in this life. Of course I couldn't say that, that's not what she wanted to hear. But I was rendered TOTALLY speechless, the one OBVIOUS answer to it was all that I could think of, and I couldn't think beyond that one answer. I scrambled, knowing that it must have been a full 30 seconds of dead air, before I came up with some politically correct, work related, bureacratic, BS response. Anyway, they called me back today and I am going up for an interview tomorrow with the Hiring Manager. Its up by my daughter, so it would work out if I got the job, even though I'm nervous about it. I was going up there anyway, since I have to fight a speeding ticket in some small town up there, aka "My Cousin Vinny". So wish me luck with both, its going to be a long day!! And by the way, my greatest accomplishment is, and will always be, being a survivor NOT maintaining the highest wrap up percentage in the enterprise for a catalog brand!! How trivial you need to be at times!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
