Strategy Statement: The interviewer wants to know about your work habits and organizational skills.

Sample Response:

No matter the project, I feel it’s necessary to customize an organized methodology when going through the analysis process. Incorporated into the process are components like targeted audience, project intent, and overall objective.

I was compelled to increase the size of our educational program, and began to seek out those area high schools that we would propose to include in our target audience. Since our program was designed to serve a specific socio-economic group, focusing on children who came from homes where there was no post-secondary background, these were the demographics I was analyzing at each school.

Need statements were developed based on services existing at each school, and these were the particulars I had analyze at each school. My goal was to establish a prioritized list of those schools who we could best serve (and would, then, best serve our program).
