Tell me about yourself!

Tell me about yourself is one of the most commonly asked questions in interviews.

How do you answer it? Don’t get personal: focus on the professional.

Be relevant and relate what you say about yourself to the company and job description. Talk about the skills you have from past jobs that make you qualified for the position.

If this is your first job, don’t worry! Talk about transferable skills you might have from clubs, classes or other activities.
