Awkward Interview Question More Magazine Issue 29th April 2013

This week,’What’s your proudest moment?’

Tony Wilmot of staffbay.com explains how to handle that curveball

WHY DO THEY ASK IT?
Your interviewer is trying to gain a better insight about what motivates you and what makes you tick. Different people answer this in different ways and the interviewer will be trying to grasp what attributes you have, and what difference you think you’ve made to others around you. 

HOW SHOULD YOU ANSWER?
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Your proudest moments have been clinching a big contract or signing off a complicated project – these work – based answers are valid. However, there’s no harm in inspecting your personal life and thinking where you’ve made a difference to your friends and family. Instilling a human touch into a tense interview atmosphere could make you more likeable and make all the difference to the outcome.

(Please Note: The information is from the More Magazine article ‘So you want to be a hairdresser’ in Issue 29th April 2013, I did not write this!)
