Strategy Statement:

This used to be the “Could you describe your work habits” question. The interviewer’s wisdom now breaks those general habits into specific tasks. However, it is your habits that the interviewer is still interested in.

Sample Response:

My habit is to build backwards. I establish the preferred outcome or goal, and then build back to the starting point. In this manner, I am able to not only address the priority of each step, but to also establish a timeline/calendar for when each step needs to be accomplished.
