How to Ace the “Tell Me about Yourself” Question

1. What is the “Tell Me About Yourself” interview question?

It’s a quick overview about your professional experience. It’s an elevator pitch about you.

2. How long should the answer be?

It should be 2 to 3 minutes long.

3. What to talk about

You can talk about your professional experience, key accomplishments, and primary strengths and how they are relevant to the position you are applying for.

4. What not to talk about

Keep it at the high level. Leave the details during the later part of the interview. You want to leave out your personal life such as family, romantic life, vacation, etc.

5. Make it concise, clear, and compelling.

Make it a coherent story. The product you’re selling is you. How can you best describe yourself in 2 to 3 minutes so a hiring manager can understand who you are and the service you’ll be providing?

Rehearse the answer until you can say it naturally and confidently.

7. The Delivery

Remember to relax, smile, and say the answer with enthusiasm and conviction.
