How to introduce yourself in a job interview

Have you ever wondered that why despite of having listed all the details about yourself in the resume, the interviewer still likes to start the session by asking you “Tell me something about yourself” The reason for this is that people like listening to information been presented to them in the form of verbal expression in contrast to referring to a printed document. Yes this simply means that they directly like to hear from the horses’s mouth that how would the candidates like to narrate the story of their life, in their own words. “Tell us something about yourself” doesn’t means that you go right back to your childhood memories and share tales of your first love or your favorite ROCK band or your obsession with Harry Potter; rather think about the awards, accolades or experiences you’ve had in your life. Consider the themes, personality traits and skills that come across through these experiences and introspect that which of these are the most important to get across through recruiters. Through personal introduction, the interviewer is giving you a chance to highlight all the key features of your personal and professional life, the top experiences you’ve had so far and the most influential skills you possess. Follow the points mentioned in the video, the next time you face a job interview and enhance the chances of you getting selected!!

SIGN UP HERE: -------------------- SUMMARY -------------------- 1. Based on the direction of the company, what do you think will be your greatest accomplishments in the next three years? Organizations need to be able to think at least three to five years into the future. But, you don't want to join an organization that only thinks about the future. Thinking is nice, but companies that act and build things and have clarity around specifically what they're going to do are worthy of you. Join them. It's a great question because it helps you understand whether they have a vision and if they have clarity regarding specifically what they want to build. Questions two, three, and four are about you and your role… 2. What are the qualities of people who are most successful in this position? You're looking for the traits the employer wants. The reason it’s a great question is you’ll get the actual traits they’re evaluating and you can use that insight immediately to highlight how you and your background and experience match those traits! Plus, it’s a great setup question for the next one. 3. If you were to give me an offer and I was to accept it, one year from now, what will I have done specifically that you would consider this hire to be a raging success? It gives you clarity to make sure you could actually achieve those objectives. And, it gives you ammunition to use within that interview or subsequent interviews to talk about exactly how you’ll accomplish what they consider a success. You now know their (year-end) goal is. Get them to envision you completing it for them. Boom. This one wins the interview even though you’re not done yet. Let’s pile on a bit… 4. If you were to give me an offer and I was to accept it, within one week of starting this job, what will be my biggest surprise? This is a little safety net for you. You want to make sure you're uncovering information you might not have uncovered with the questions you've designed. It gets the interviewer thinking hmmm, what might this person not ask in the job interview I could share or what surprised me when I first started with the company? 5. What's your management style and what are your expectations of the position you might not have already mentioned? -------------------- ABOUT ANDREW -------------------- Andrew LaCivita is an internationally recognized executive recruiter, award-winning author, trainer, and founder and chief executive officer of milewalk and the milewalk Academy.
