The sentence below is a question in my job application form.
What does "initiative" mean in my sentence?
What opportunities did you have to use your initiative?
There are at least 2 possibilities:
1) initiative = action taken to solve a difficulty
2) initiative = the ability to use your judgment to make decisions and do things without needing to be told what to do
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
