Tell Me Something About Yourself

Post by jortigas on Tue Jul 27, 2010 7:38 pm

Tell me something about yourself maybe a simple interview question but your response will set the spirit of the whole process if you don’t really know what information to include that would determine whether you will get the job. Experts say that the secret to responding to this question is to practice and begin with the information you want the interviewer to know about you. Before the big interview you have to list your strengths in terms of experience, skills, and traits, prepare a script, and begin by talking about your previous experience, mention the strengths you have listed and end with your current situation like what you are looking for in a company you want to work with. Practice your script until you are confident enough not to sound rehearsed because this preparation will assist you in answering other questions and help you focus what you have to offer to the company you are applying.

I get asked the same question when I apply and normally I do say about my previous job experiences, what school I graduated from, and what my strengths are. I don't share personal details during the interview unless I am asked as I want to stay professional. I assume that they want to know more about what I can contribute to the company instead of hearing about my personal life Very Happy
