“In an interview you are asked to talk about your knowledge, your skills with professional tools, your work habits—all the things that qualify you for the job.

To substantiate a particular technical or performance skill you have that qualifies you for the job, it is best to tell the interviewer about a situation in which you used that skill. Your story needs to include all the relevant details about the situation, the hindrances, your actions, the result of your actions, and the outcome. And you need to show that you understand the larger meaning of your experience.”
