Asking “What’s your greatest achievement” is a way to learn about your hard skills and work ethic, and the story you select can position you as a match for the company. Your choice shows what you consider important, and how you define success. What you describe explains your approach to doing a job and getting work done.
An “accomplishment” story is your time to shine. It’s still worth preparing so you can choose an answer that makes sense for the company and for the role you’d like.
A great way to answer questions on your professional achievements is using the STAR method: situation, task, action, results.
