In this Business English Podcast lesson, we examine another good example of how to respond to questions about your previous experience and, in particular, how to describe your accomplishments and proudest achievements.
We’ll look at someone with a little more job experience: Yala Santos is an HR specialist who is working in a manufacturing company. She now has an opportunity to interview for an HR manager position in a business unit of a fast moving consumer goods company, Fun Beverages International. Let’s listen to how Yala deals with talking about her greatest achievement.
Yala was working on the launch of a global, harmonized performance management system that would provide a single, interlinked on employee performance for human resources worldwide.
Yala worked on localization and documentation for her business unit.
She coordinated with the sales team to provide them with pre-training on the system and to ensure that they could set all their targets.
The launch was successful. Yalaâ€™s efforts helped ensure that the launch of the new system had no negative effect on the bottom line (profit) of the company because of the seamless (smooth) transition into using the harmonized database.
