To some this question might seem pointless and you might think he/she’s ‘got my details in front of them’ and be tempted to say ‘it’s all written on my CV’. That’s definitely the wrong answer. Here the interviewer is ‘testing’ your ability to communicate a clear, confident, relevant and succinct summary of what you have done to date. This should not cover your entire career and you can ask the interviewer if there is any particular area of the CV that they want you to start from. achievements. Think of it as a great opportunity for you to ‘sell’ yourself because you can mention relevant achievements for example,
” My day to day activities included X, Y and Z – it was a high pressure environment but that suited my mindset and I especially enjoyed working with my colleagues on X projects and presenting the results to clients on new business pitches. In fact during my time at Widgets Ltd I was the leading Business Developer for 6 months in a row and bought 7 new clients on board which turned in to £150,000 of sales for the business.” Note: X, Y and Z and all other activities/attributes mentioned should be directly relevant to the job you are interviewing for.
