Best Interview Answer to "Tell me about yourself" YouTube Top Pick

Оценок: 17210 | Просмотров: 5001557
Watch Don show you exactly how to answer "Tell Me About Yourself." Tell me about yourself is one of the toughest interview questions. This is an open-ended question, but really what the interviewer wants to hear is about your recent work experience and your journey that brought you to this point in your career. Why don't they just ask that question instead? Because they want to see where you will go with an open-ended question. Your answer to "tell me about yourself" tells the interviewer where your mind is. If you start telling him that you are a Cleveland Browns fan, then you are way off base with what he wants to hear and you have just made your first mistake. What do you want the interviewer to know about you when you leave, your work experience or your personal interests? I'm confident their hiring decision will be based on your work experience, save your personal interests for the water cooler after you get the job. Wrong answer to tell me about yourself: 1. "What would you like to know?" This statement completely throws the question back at the interviewer in somewhat of an insulting way and he/she is forced to reword the question. Best answer to tell me about yourself: 1. "What part of my work experience would you like me to talk about?" a. Now the interviewer can reply with a simple straightforward answer. Some interviewers want you to start from your first job and others only want to hear about your most recent job. b. If the interviewer would like you to start from your first job, assuming it has been several years since you had that job, then lightly touch on the jobs that you no longer hold, but expand on your current or most recent job experience and accomplishments. Focus on your answer and talk about your accomplishments from your current or most recent job and lightly touch on your daily duties. These are the things an interviewer really wants to hear. Because if he thinks you were successful at your past job, then you will be successful at this job. Even if you don't feel that you accomplished anything, look deep and think of something you did that helped the company. Or better yet, describe an accomplishment that you contributed to the company, just make sure it's in the same line of work. For example, don't take credit for boosting sales revenue if your job is to fix computers. • Briefly talk about your current employer. • Discuss 2-3 of your most significant accomplishments. • Talk about a few of your key strengths as they relate to the job for which you are applying and how they can benefit from your strengths. • Then discuss how you see yourself fitting into a position at their company. 1. Speak of how you completed projects on time and under budget. 2. Tell them how you increased sales revenues for two straight quarters in a row. 3. Describe of how you came up with a new procedure that saved the company money. 4. "I have been in the customer service industry for several years and most of my experience has been dealing with calls from our customers. I truly enjoy working with the people in this business as well as the challenges. In my last job, the good relationships I formed with my customers resulted in me holding the highest customer retention rate of everyone else in my department." 5. "One of my best strengths is my attention to detail. When I set out to work on a task or project, I always make sure it get's done on time."

Don has great content, watch his videos! One additional recommendation would be to answer with question with "I reviewed the position and it appears to be a great match for my three of my core strengths/skills, problem solving, leadership, and driving results with data (identify your specific strengths for the position you are applying to). I am happy to discuss all three, but is their one strength you would like me to focus on that would aligns with your specific needs right now for this opening?" This is important because you turned your focus specifically to the role and how you are a fit, these are the critical items for the tell me about yourself question. Remember sometimes company priorities change after they post the role, don't assume that they won't have a specific skill or strength that is critical right now/today; you are allowing the interviewer to see that you are focused on their needs and removing any guess work or assumptions about what is most important to them. This strategy may only work 25% of the time, but in those instances you will be telling the interviewer exactly what they want to hear. If not, you are still focused on aligning your core strengths/skills with the position and this is always a good idea! I hope this insight helps!

Anyone here that's got an interview coming up. Here's are a few tips for you. 1) If you feel you panic a lot. Think of going into the interview as the interviewer. "Why is this company the best fit for me?" 2) If they tell you that you didn't get the job or that they'll let you know in a week etc. ALWAYS ask why you didn't get it. "Can you tell me why I didn't get the job so I can improve on my interview skills for future interviews." That puts them on the spot and you'll get a lot of great feedback from this. Most companies don't tell you why you forget the job but always ask because your trying to improve yourself. Another great question is.."Why attracted you about me in my resume?" You can ask these at the end of the interview when you allot you time. Good luck.

WRONG ! - You're very first answer should be: I am a gentleman. It's a trick question. Interviewer wants to know if you are cultured/mannered - that is also important. And then go into some education and the relevant experience you have that lines up. Accomplishments count big !

I bought his course with $99 last year, the contents in the course are as same as what you can see on his youtube channel! So, now you know how to save your money. I wanted to get a refund at that time, so that I sent Don and his team a few emails, but I could not get any responses at all although he promised that it was refundable in his advertisement. I agreed to what Alex Mag said, "People who good at interview just best liars", and Don is the best person to teach you how to be the best liars in a job interview, because himself is very good on lying.

Too bad for the people who are not good at answering questions but have the ability to do the job and good attitude to the people. Why they just don't look at the resume instead of the person's ability to give the answer which pleased the interviewer. Not everybody has the ability to give the best answer but once they are on the job they are very good and hard worker.

Ive been asked this question before and I did exactly what you described on my first experience with it and got the job. BUT I think it's misleading and a little snake like. Some people may not answer it right because they will literally answer the question for what it is then lose a job offer because of that, then the person who does good on the interview and gets the job turns out not be that great at the job after all and needs to be fired or beats you to the punch and quits. Then your back at square one because you chose the candidate that answered all interview questions right. That's nonsense. If the question is pertaining to why your qualified for the job etc, etc, then that's how the question should be asked assholes.

Any interviewer who asks: "Tell me about yourself" is playing games. Or feigning asking for a future date; not appropriate. They already have had my resume in print for long enough to have read it [presuming they can actually read]. I am not in an interview to play games. Want to know something? Ask. I'll probably answer immediately and truthfully with no tapdancing, unless it is a monumentally inappropriate questions that I have actually been asked by both H.R. staff and potential bosses. If they want more details about my most recent or any other work history? Ask. May not get that job but is ultimately a blessing because I never want to work for manipulators nor sneaks with ulterior motives.

Hi Don! I was asked by the UNHCR Kenya over phonetic interview to get a job as Youth Sports specialist. "If do not have donors to get money to continue the activities, how will you continue your assigned activities? " I answered - every organization has crisis management fund to continue the activities, so we could be spend from the crisis fund and I didn't select. Would you please answer me what will be the exact reply. Regards.

Simon sinek says it best 'just because you don't have a passion for interviewing doesn't mean you have a passion for working It's like an NFL draft you may not be the best at interviewing or the first picked candidate but put into the right environment/team you could accomplish a lot more than the first picked candidate which is in say a different team So environment and management help a great deal to a successful candidate

Utterly ridiculous. The interview process promotes nepotism, in my opinion. It can keep qualified applicants from becoming part of a successful team.

Don, thank you so much for all your tips and advice. After months of interviews at several companies, I finally landed a great job with a big, established investment bank thanks to your videos. To everyone else reading: pay close attention to what he says, take notes because it is proven. Don's advice helped me out so much more than any other video on the topic.

tell me a little but about your self" its a very different question than "whats is your work experience" let me tell you... when they ask you the first question often they want to know what kind of mind set do you have? for example, im a very high energy person, very goal oriented ext... when they ask for your experience thats when you have to let them know all of your work knowledge... judt an FYI....
MrBigEnchilada (1 год назад)
i think people who ask "tell me about yourself" is fking lazy and i can give them any answer i want and how would they know it shows that I'm good? Also obviously i dont want to recite my whole story because that would take too long, so then i have to prioritize what to talk about, it's a dumb question.
terrance browder (1 год назад)
They ask you questions like you you've experienced everything on the list.

Uhhh can we talk about my resume in front of you?

Yeah but what do you say if you're actually pretty mediocre and accomplished nothing in your previous positions because retail is soul draining as fuck lol  What are we "free spirits" supposed to say? I have had 17 jobs in 10 years and move states every 2 years. Like my greatest accomplishment is showing up on time. Perhaps boosting morale with my sweetness and love of listening to all my coworkers problems hahaha I actually have a real good work ethic and do what's expected of me, am well liked and have never been fired but I REALLY struggle with interviews because my life is really unconventional, and Im not passionate about this work at all. I am just looking to get some stupid entry level job while I save for massage school. Onto greener pasturesssss Anyways What would you recommend?
