7. What did you pull
During an interview,
typical statements about one's "accomplishments" rank
right up there with the Top Ten Stupid Interview Questions. A real
accomplishment is something a soldier did during a war while the
enemy was shooting at him.If the employer is a worthy one what he
really wants to know is, What have you pulled off? He doesn't want
to hear that you performed the tasks you were paid to do. He
doesn't want to hear how you earned ten brownie points. What he's
asking is, How did you make something happen that wasn't supposed
to happen? Why are you still alive today?
