Matt Sileno Career Resources: Beware The ‘Tell Me About Yourself’ Job Interview Question!

“Tell me about yourself” doesn’t really mean, “tell me about yourself” in the traditional sense. Still, the overwhelming majority of job seekers usually respond to the question with an inane, irrelevant answer. When asked at the beginning of a job interview, the “tell me about yourself” question is certainly not a request for a brief personal biography! Your answer to the question definitely should be laser-focused on the specific task at hand: Getting the position for which you are applying!

The recommended, correct way to answer the “tell me about yourself” question is by utilizing a three-part, pre-planned and prepared marketing/branding statement approach. (Each part, of course, is delivered consecutively to comprise the entire answer to the question.)

Parts One and Two can normally be used from interview to interview, while Part Three will need to be customized for each unique career opportunity. Let’s briefly examine the makeup of each of the three parts.
