How would you rate yourself as good employee?

An interviewer can ask you to rate yourself on a number of criteria – such as your skills as a leader, a team player, a teacher, or a researcher. Obviously, you need to begin by saying that you are a good leader, team player, or whatever. Don’t let modesty get in the way of selling yourself – you can bet that other candidates are making all sorts of wild claims
about how great they are.
