Interview Question: Your Professional Growth - Deepstash

Interview Question: Your Professional Growth

Question: What have you done in the last year to grow professionally?

Answer: This question checks the learning orientation and growth mindset of the candidate. A high EQ also leads to candidates being able to identify what they lack professionally and personally and work towards self-learning.

Instead of talking about mandatory learning, focus on the self-initiated projects and personal activities that lead to professional growth, like social campaigning, data analysis, or even reading something specific.
