Hey everyone, I am Vincent and today we're going to be talking about the age old job interview question:
Tell me about yourself. Now this 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 interviewer wants to know about 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 I interned at 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 interviewee did well. Number one: he included his academic background with an MBA from South University.
And, 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.
And, make sure you focus on those strengths.
Again, 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.
