Tough Interview Questions – Describe a major goal you’ve set for yourself recently.

Give an example of a goal you both set and achieved. Ideally, this should be a professional goal; such as improved time management skills, having achieved new performance targets, or learned a new skill. A personal example can also be appropriate if it reinforces your pattern of accomplishments. For example, if you take a great deal of initiative and quickly move into leadership positions, you might use a personal example relating to some recent community work e.g I organised a charity walkathon that raised £10,000 to enable us to purchase new computers for the local library. Talk about results of achieving your goal. This indicates you set realistic goals and that you can focus on end goals. Select an example that contains interesting outcomes that are related to your efforts. The example should showcase your skills and abilities.
