Repurpose Your Purpose gained its first media mention, and from none other than Glassdoor Blog! I love Glassdoor, its system of anonymous reviews and salary information is an indispensable tool for all job seekers.
I was quoted for my advice on how to answer the job interview question: “Tell me about an accomplishment you are most proud of.” Here’s my answer as quoted:
Resist the urge to talk about that time you won your office softball league playoffs or how you got a 4.0 in your hardest class in college. To really nail this question, you should “share a story that is as close as possible to the job you are interviewing for, and that best showcases your strengths and approach to work,” says Aurora Meneghello, career coach and founder of Repurpose Your Purpose.
“Describe an instance where there was a problem, state the impact of that problem, and how you were able to solve it. Share the results beyond your immediate solution. For example, if you created a new onboarding system for new hires, share why the company needed one, what was the impact of not having an onboarding system, how you went about creating one, and how, one year later, there is less churn, employees are more efficient, etc.,” Meneghello says.
