This interview question is almost guaranteed to be asked as it tells the people interviewing you who you are and what you did in the last role.

 

This is once again one of those questions that can be hugely helpful in you securing this new job if you answer it correctly.

 

But what is correct?

 

Well, there are many answers to that but some guidelines are:

 

Make sure you mention the most important ones to start with and not the small tasks you did as you don’t want to make it sound like you just did some small menial tasks all day long and some important ones every now and then.

 

Make sure you explain a bit each task with perhaps an example but do not go into great detail unless you are asked to.

 

And also, please mention, if possible, responsibilities here that could be useful in the new job you are applying to. This is important as it gives you seniority and lets the interviewer know that you know already some aspects of the job and that they don’t have to train you from scratch.

 

Conclusion: Go through your previous responsibilities in order of importance and explain them shortly. If possible, mention responsibilities that would be useful in the new job.
