Strategy Statement:

This a question of self-assessment. How do you perceive yourself and the influence you have on the workplace. Be confident, but not boastful.

Sample Response:

I was able to impress co-workers, supervisors and clients with my energy. Actually, the energy was simply a reflection of the genuine interest that I had in the job. If I am anything, I am authentic.

As a teacher, I know that students are very quick-to-judge when they sense that there is a lack of dedication or commitment. My authenticity was highlighted through the respect that I showed for my fellow instructors, supervisors, and students. As a result, teachers liked working with me on combined projects, supervisors knew that I could be counted-upon, and students wanted to follow-along as I started teaching other classes.
