Tough Interview Question — Tell Me About Yourself presents another tough interview question - "Tell Me About Yourself." Do you know how to best answer this question? Watch this video to find out.


Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with and this is The Job Search Minute. Here’s another tough interview question, “tell me about yourself.” It seems like an easy question, its open-ended, I can talk about anything I want from the birth canal forward right? WRONG. What the hiring manager really wants is a quick 2-3 minute snapshot of who you are and why you’re the best candidate for this position. So as you answer this question, talk about what you have been doing to prepare yourself to be the very best candidate for the position. Use an example or two to back it up, then ask if they would like more details. If they do, keep giving them example or example of your background and experience. Always point back to an example when you have the opportunity. “Tell me about yourself” does not mean, “tell me everything,” just tell me about what makes you the best.
