The famous “Tell me about yourself” question
This is something you should practice and perfect. It’s the basic introduction of who you are and what you are looking for in a job. It will form the basis of your introductory message when networking, and your opening statement in telephone contacts with employers.
Here are some pointers on how to keep the messaging on-target and focused.
What did you most enjoy about your last job?
How would your colleagues or supervisor describe you?
What can you offer us that other people cannot?
What about this job attracts you?
How long do you see yourself with us?
How would you describe an ideal working environment?
