Strategic Statement:

The interviewer may want to know how comfortable you are in making decisions, and whether that comfort promotes a sense of independence or teamwork in the workplace.

Sample Response:

My current position is as a teacher. During the course of a semester, I find myself making long-range (‘Big Picture’) decisions (curriculum, textbooks, scheduling), mid-range decisions (such as developing rubrics and assigning work), and ‘Small Picture’ decisions (mode of instruction, lesson plans, discussion notes).

Interviewed for position: Teacher
