The Perfect Formula for Answering "What Is Your Greatest Accomplishment" in an Interview

When you're preparing for a job interview, you'll be anticipating the most common interview questions, and you'll want to prepare for a whole slew of behavioral questions that ask about your past experiences. So compared to stumpers like "Why should we hire you?" or "Tell me about a time you had a conflict with your boss," "What is your greatest accomplishment?" may seem like a breeze to answer. But actually coming up with your greatest accomplishment-your greatest accomplishment? really?!-can feel daunting on the spot. That's why it's worth taking a few minutes to think about how you'd answer this question if asked.

3. The Art of the Pivot - A free virtual event by Chicago Innovation

If we could all trace our steps backwards over the past few months, we'd see that no one among us has walked a straight line. Our paths are full of pivots 
- but what's the thought process behind these quick movements? Is there a strategy for preparing for things you can't exactly plan for?

Pivoting is indeed an art form, and one that thankfully can be taught. Whether you're rethinking your product line, adapting to a new market, or staring down the blank pages of your next personal chapter, your success begins with that very first move towards change. Join us in learning from a few of Chicago's best adapters.

Date: Thursday, September 17th
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM (CDT)
Register: here


This is a special meeting for women only. And to the NSENG male members... if you have a wife or female friend that you think may benefit from attending this meeting, please encourage her to join us whether she's an NSENG member or not.

Job interviewers make up their minds about you in a matter of seconds - for women, in particular, this can be a big challenge. As an individual who helped break the glass ceiling for women in the broadcast industry, CATHERINE JOHNS will show you how you can make a more powerful and memorable impression from the beginning to the end of an interview. With the right approach, you can create credibility so people will want to know you better, refer you and/or hire you. During her presentation, you will discover how to:
  • Come across confident and in command during phone calls, interviews and networking meetings.
  • Change your internal state of mind so you actually "feel" more confident.
  • Manage your non-verbal communications to make a stronger impression.
  • Use your voice and choice of words to make sure you're delivering the message you want to send.
  • Understand what you may be doing to yourself that undermines your credibility.

5. Free Webinar - Timing & Research are Critical in a Job Search

Your job search is all about timing and being the most prepared.   You should NOT be spending more than 15% of your time applying to job boards because that is where you have the most competition and lowest rate of return on your investment of time.  During this session, we will address the following:
  • The impact of timing on your job search
  • Thorough research of a company and contacts is critical
