    If you was asked this question in an interview, how would you respond to it, what stuff would you talk about?

    Give an example of a time when you had to achieve a personally challenging target or goal?

    I am really stuck, I got a feeling it will come up in an upcoming interview, well 99.9% sure this question will. How could i respond?

    I doubt my answer would be very helpful to you - you need to talk about something you've done!

    Something you've really felt proud of after achieving it. Depends on yourself to be honest. I mean is there an exam that you had no hope in hell of you getting a certain grade and you managed it?

    I would talk about a big piece of coursework/essay/project and explain how I had to work hard on this project while balancing my time around other work.

    They'll probably be looking for you to show your strengths and characteristics in your answer.

    "I had to lead a team to victory in my colleges business enterprise week despite team members not cooperating at the start. Through my organisational skills and determination, we ended up being the winning team". i said something like that in my interview!
