Tell Me Something About Yourself , JOB INTERVIEW question

Posted By laxmi On 6:01 AM Under
Here let us discuss the most important question of the decade “Tell me something about yourself

For this each one of you spend some time idle analyse about what to say and has to frame up with your own answer.You just sit down quietly and think about yourself and write it down in a notebook because only you can best deliver about yourself once you start think about you. However here are some guidelines to do the analysis:
>> 1. The answer should not be too long or too short. The ideal length would be around 1 to 1.5 minutes. (If you are not cut in between)
>> 2. Maintain a sense of time. Go in a chronological order.
>> 3. Mention the names of your school and college with pride and confidence.
>> 4. Don't give too long a description about your family. Concentrate on yourself.
>> 5. Decide what is your strong point. It could be academics or extracurricular activities or a special skill or a national/ international level achievement. While mentioning any of these, emphasize on what you learnt and what you intend to display by mentioning this achievement.
eg: I was the Vice chairman of a cultural club in my college.Say this as, "I have been involved in organization and publicity of numerous events as the Vice chairman of a cultural club during graduation."
>> 6. If they stop you in between, stop. Do not try to complete.
>> 7. If you have finished your answer and they do not move on, wait for a second, smile and politely ask, "anything specific you wish to know about me?"
>> 8. Maintain a track of what you have filled in your application form. It must be in sync with what you speak.
>> 9. I would advise not to mention specifically, your long term ambitions while answering this question unless you are absolutely sure you will be able to answer any related questions. Remember you are there to prove your candidature as a student, not as a businessman.
>> 10. Lastly, if they do not ask you this question, be sure that you try your best to divert the interview towards your strengths.
