When someone asks, "What am I most proud of" in an interview, respond with a specific example of a challenging situation you faced and the actions to you took to generate a positive outcome (one that fills you with immense pride in your skills and abilities).
Before the interview, you should conduct research on common interview questions so you are prepared with responses. Being prepared will put your mind at ease and allow you to focus on the dialogue between you and the interviewer. PS: "What am I most proud of?" is a common interview question, so you should definitely get a response ready in case the question is asked.
When evaluating the opportunity for which you are applying, consider the essential functions of the job. For example, if you are interviewing for a position that is customer service focused, then you might include an example where you went above and beyond to help a customer, and the positive outcome of that effort. Whatever you decide to share, make sure you represent the situation and your interactions in a positive way. Review the company’s website and do some self-directed research to help you prepare an answer that is in line with the company’s mission and the job itself.

The most important aspect to remember when answering this question is emphasizing relevant skills. This question is an open-ended opportunity to describe any ability or experience. What you choose to describe communicates that it is a priority to you. So, if the job you are applying for requires excellent communication skills, you can mention a situation when you used these skills to make a customer's day, or catch a communication error which saved the company money, or some other instance revolving around communication.
Think carefully about what abilities the employers value most to inform your answer. You can usually discover this information by reviewing the job description and the company website.
