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 question
is asked at the start of most job interviews at every company and
there’s many different ways to be able to word this question but for the most
part they’re all asking about the same thing. Now the worst thing that you can do is
ask the interviewer, well, what do want to know about me? This show that you haven’t properly
prepared for the interview. Now the interviewer doesn’t want to know
about your hobbies, your family, or even your favorite TV show. The biggest mistake that many job
candidates make is thinking that them personally, as a person. So what major points do you want to get across? Well, the interviewer is interested in
understanding if you can do the job. Whether or not you would fit into the
team and the culture of the organization and what you have accomplished in the
past and how you can help their organization, but they’re not
asking 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 show
that you know a lot about the company, about the job description, and about the
role that you’re applying for. Make sure to do a quick Google search to
understand what the company does and maybe even look for some recent
headlines. Now there’s three different sections
that you want to make sure that you cover. So let’s break it down. Section number
one is education and experience. You want to also number two: highlight your most important accomplishments. and number three: show that you have
drive, energy, and motivation. especially through your tone and how you
say things sometimes how you say it is even more
important than what you say but at the end of the day there’s one
thing that you want to get across I can add value and be a great fit for
your organization. I recently completed my MBA from South
University where I led 150 other peers as the class
President implemented the campuses first recycling program. Last summer intern SanCity
Corporation. Where I developed the holiday sales and
marketing 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 opportunity
with Solar Media because of my passion for green energy and delivering
sustainable growth in sales. Let’s review what this interview we did
well. Number one: he included his academic background with an MBA from South
University. He presented that he was a student
leader there. He also showed that he had relevant experience starting a recycling
program in a passion in green energy while driving growth in sales at a
previous job. He also showed that he’s very interested in this opportunity and
passionate about the industry that he wants to be
able to join. Therefore he can add value and be a great fit for
this organization. Now you want to make sure that you practice practice practice. This is your first impression to the
interviewer, 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 that
you’re going to get a question similar to this one so you want to make sure that you’re
selling what the interviewer is buying. Think about what they’ll be interested
in by really understanding the job description and the traits that they’re
looking for in the job description. Make sure you focus on those
strengths. Your answer should be no more than three
minutes, nothing worse than somebody who ramble so think of it as a movie preview you just wanna hook the interviewer in
just enough that they’re gonna pay for that ticket to watch the entire movie. You also want to make sure that you find
a way to stand out from the rest to the crowd. Thanks for joining us today and good luck with your job search. To
