Say you added a new feature to a product during an internship / previous job and you want to describe this to an interviewer (or on your resume.)

How do you convey the significance of what you did without actually revealing confidential information?

      That number is almost never going to be public. Isn't that a violation already?

      You’re not giving the actual numbers, just the percentage increase.

      “Increasing user engagement by 30%” = I have no idea what I did, but neither do you!

    It’s funny how people violate their current employer’s NDA and talk about everything in their interview but when someone asks them what was asked in their interview they say they signed an NDA and will not break it.

    If it's not a secret, people usually talk about it.

    If it's public, put it up on resume.

  • If it's a visible feature, it got announced or included in the docs.

    Copy. Paste. Done.
