Now, before you begin to answer this question, Tell me something about Yourself, You must first understand why have the Interviewer asked this Question? Most of the time this question is asked in the Interview to break the Ice and make the candidate feel relaxed. Remember, This is an opportunity for you to speak the Most compelling information about you. So Be Confident & Be Loud. Now, Let’s see how to answer this question
Interviewer : Tell me Something about Yourself
Start Introducing your self and begin by saying ” I am (XYZ) from (mention your Hometown). Followed by this, Mention your Highest qualification. Say ” I’m a Graduate or a Post Graduate in (Your Stream of Education) and also mention the CERTIFICATIONS you have done if any. Then talk about your Skills. Say ” I am Good at “(mention 2 – 3 skills). Then talk about your Hobbies/ Fav Pass-time. Say “I take Delight in” (Mention your Hobby/ Hobbies). If you have spoken for over 1.5 – 2 Minutes then you may stop here and if you feel like speaking more then Mention about your Family Background. In the end, you can say ” That’s about me in a nutshell (in Brief).
The reason why we should end it is because at times the Interview doesn’t get to know whether you have ended your Introduction or still in progress and sometimes the Interviewer might do it intentionally. So this ending statement makes it v.clear that you have ended it. Remember the order and not the exact words. The words will automatically flow if your order is right. But if you try to remember each word and speak then you may be in trouble if you miss out on something.
Name ->Location ->Highest Education Qualification ->Certifications if any ->Skills ->Hobbies ->Family Background (if reqd) -> Ending Statement
