This first interview question is highly common in any job interview, so you should be prepared to respond. Your relevant history and work experience, as well as any unique abilities you offer to this role, are all important to the interviewer. Keep your response short and sweet, like this:
“I have a computer science and statistics degree.” I interned at a logistics firm, where I was able to put my statistical skills to use. In that role, I was responsible for working with vast volumes of data to guarantee that all transportation was delivered on time and at the lowest feasible cost. I even devised a number of new procedures for completing systems."
