I am a software engineer, I get confused what to answer, where to start, when I am asked this question: "Tell me about your last project?"
I usually start with the problem description, then stating the solution as the project. Project architecture, one line intro about all the modules. By this time the interviewer looses interest or very desperate to finish quickly just wants me to jump straight to my module.
Listening 2-3 sentences they guess and ask me 2-3 direct technical questions before wrapping up. I find it difficult to answer these questions as, they had not allowed me to fully explain the modules. So I feel they might assume me as a person who has insufficient knowledge about the project or my module.
What's the best way to explain a big project within few minutes. And how would I know what they are looking for? ( Should I just limit my explanation limited to their requirement?)
