Tell me about yourself:
This will be the first question asked in the most of the interviews. The reason for this question is to figure out
1. your communication skills
2. how articulate you are
3. how confident you are
4. how will handle some unknown situation
5. and obviously to find out your technical strengths.
6. Some persons ask this question to go
through your resume while you are telling about yourself.
The wrong way to handle it:
1. confused on where to start
2. pausing in between while telling
3. finishing of in 2-3 lines.
4. Telling all the stories about your family, your brother, & what they are doing.Don't elaborate on these points unless interviewer asks you.
Bad interview eg: I was born in small village, where there is no proper schooling system. My father bought up with lots of difficulties.
My brother has done his engineering in so and so college, now he is working as software engineer. This kind of starting answers are very boring to the interviewers.So focus more on your recent education which is necessery and your acadamic achievements.
The correct response:
1. you have to figure out what the interviewe is expecting most, for that job.
2. your carreir accomplishments that suits your job.
a. Briefly introduce about your name, your recent education or job.
b. In case of freshers, point out what you have achieved in your recent education which is useful for this current position.
c. If you have good percentage marks or got some recognition in your college days highlight that point.
d. If you have lead any team to any seminar or lead the team in the sports or any where make out that point. Interviewers like leaders.
e. If you have worked previously in some company then highlight how your achievements in the team has helped the company by siting some example, which will fit current role.This is kind of marketing trick, where you are marketing yourself to the company about your qualifications and he is buying your skills.
f. Highlight most important accomplishments.
g. Tell something which makes them to pose more questions about that topic.
Eg: tell a story in your past company or in college, which got you some recognition.
h. if you were working in some company, briefly explain your roles and responsibilities to interviewer, so that he can post some more questions on that.
Tell what interviewer is expecting for that role. Don't tell your family story.
Talk about things you have done and jobs you have held that relate to the position you are interviewing for.
