How do I describe a project in under 2 minutes? What should I include in my answers?
While you will probably have the opportunity to expand on a few of your projects, the ability to curb yourself and answer questions in a short time frame is extremely important. Take the time to plan what you are going to say for each of your projects in a short and long version. When writing the short version, make sure you draw attention to each project’s actions, solutions, outcomes, and your impact on the company.
