    proactive as Strengths

    Hi All,

    Can I use the word "proactive" as strength for a job interview?
    I mean, in portuguese it is common, I don not know if I can use it in english.

    1. Descriptive of any event or stimulus or process that has an effect on events or stimuli or processes that occur subsequently as in

    "proactive inhibition"; "proactive interference"

    2. (of a policy or person or action) controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than waiting to respond to it after it happens

    Yes, you could say you are proactive, but in what domain (subject)?

    Proactive in solving management issues.
    Proactive in maintenance schedules


    (I think it's an overused word, lately)
