Interview Questions: Tell Me About Yourself
Hey everyone, I am Vincent and today going to be talking about the age old job interview question: Tell me about yourself.
Now the questionis asked at the start of most job interviews at every company andthere's many different ways to be able to word this question but for the mostpart they're all asking about the same thing.
Now the worst thing that you can do isask the interviewer, well, what do want to know about me? This show that you haven't properlyprepared for the interview.
Now the interviewer doesn't want to knowabout your hobbies, your family, or even your favorite TV show.
The biggest mistake that many jobcandidates make is thinking that them personally, as a person.
So what major points do you want to get across? Well, the interviewer is interested inunderstanding if you can do the job.
Whether or not you would fit into theteam and the culture of the organization and what you have accomplished in thepast and how you can help their organization, but they're notasking you to give your entire biography, or read through your resume line by line.
Keep your statements brief and your answer to this question should be around two to three minutes.
You also want to make sure that you showthat you know a lot about the company, about the job description, and about therole that you're applying for.
Make sure to do a quick Google search tounderstand what the company does and maybe even look for some recentheadlines.
Now there's three different sectionsthat you want to make sure that you cover.
So let's break it down.
Section numberone is education and experience.
You want to also number two: highlight your most important accomplishments.
and number three: show that you havedrive, energy, and motivation.
especially through your tone and how yousay things sometimes how you say it is even moreimportant than what you say but at the end of the day there's onething that you want to get across I can add value and be a great fit foryour organization.
I recently completed my MBA from SouthUniversity where I led 150 other peers as the classPresident implemented the campuses first recycling program.
Last summer intern SanCityCorporation.
Where I developed the holiday sales andmarketing strategy that led to the largest growth in sales the company had ever experienced.
While I really enjoyed that experience, I'm very interested in this opportunitywith Solar Media because of my passion for green energy and deliveringsustainable growth in sales.
Let's review what this interview we didwell.

He also showed that he had relevant experience starting a recyclingprogram in a passion in green energy while driving growth in sales at aprevious job.
He also showed that he's very interested in this opportunity andpassionate about the industry that he wants to beable to join.
Therefore he can add value and be a great fit forthis organization.
Now you want to make sure that you practice practice practice.
This is your first impression to theinterviewer, so you don't want to lose their attention in order to really knock it out of the park, you want to plan and rehearse.
It is almost guaranteed thatyou're going to get a question similar to this one so you want to make sure that you'reselling what the interviewer is buying.
Think about what they'll be interestedin by really understanding the job description and the traits that they'relooking for in the job description.
Make sure you focus on thosestrengths.
Your answer should be no more than threeminutes, nothing worse than somebody who ramble so think of it as a movie preview you just wanna hook the interviewer injust enough that they're gonna pay for that ticket to watch the entire movie.
