Hi Gagandeep

Before interview prepare your list of accomplishments. So that when this question is asked you don't go blank and a number of them should spring to your mind.

Prefer to keep your answers job related. Your reply could be of something like - 'Although I feel my biggest achievements are still ahead of me, I am proud of my involvement in…I made my contribution as part of that team and learnt a lot in the process. We did it with hard work, concentration and an eye for the detail.

First, achievements and accomplishments are similar, so your answers would also be similar if asked about either.

Second, your answer should include why you consider these accomplishments as 'the biggest'? I suggest that you may use following parameters: accomplishments which were very difficult to achieve, those which resulted in great learning - it could be improvement in your knowledge or/and skills, those which make you proud of yourself, and those which had the greatest positive impact on others.

Finally, your accomplishments are a stepping stone for even bigger accomplishments in future. These help you to identify your strengths and capabilities which you would like to enhance further.

Hi Gagandeep

generally these questions are asked by interviewer to understand behavioral foundation for focusing specifically on the result of the candidate's career. And it allows the interviewer to look into your behavioral component, the Situation or Task, the Action you took and the Results achieved,

one should answer such question backward, starting with the achievement and explaining how it was achieved.this will help you in grabbing the attention of interviewer and to show him how much of that accomplishment was actually due to the actions of yours and how much was from the actions of others.

It is acceptable to talk about a shared accomplishments which was achieved by a team,You will need to talk specifically about your role in the delivery.

Hello,

With continue of above expert ideas you can go ahead.

But always show those accomplishments first which are going to add some value for the applied post. so can add value to your profile.

If you are marathon winner and applying for accountant than it is not going to add value so be careful when you reply about accomplishments.
