Hello, thanks for this great video. However, what about cases like mine that I have changed careers and after working 15 years as an officer on tankerships, i studied Computer Science from the beginning and I am now a programmer and IT person? Will it be OK to start my story saying about my role as navigation officer on ship or should I start with the first job in IT ,my current job?
"Tell me about yourself" or "Why should we hire you?" is your keynote sales pitch. You are the product and the seller, the buyer is in front of you; this is your opportunity to stand out from the other similar products on the market and sell yourself. Pieces of paper will sell your basic ability to do the job and nothing else. At interview your face, body shape, physical fitness, clothes, hair, makeup, tone of voice, your dialect, posture, eye contact etc all make a difference as to whether you successfully sell yourself - jobs like people come in all shapes, sizes and packaging so impress your potential buyer. Your story is the highlight of the sales event, its content and delivery is everything.
Thank you so much for this video. It gave me courage and confidence during my interview period with which I ended up getting a job due to the the tricks that I used from your tellings.Thank you so much!
I am a fresh graduate looking for my first job, I applied for different companies and your channel provided me with needed knowledge and skills especially on job interviews! Clear, complete and engaging videos! Thank you Linda! 😊
Never had an interview where they asked me to tell me about myself.. THEY usually ask what makes me a good candidate for that job position straight off the bat?? why did I choose their company?? why should their company choose me?? If someone doesn't interview by saying tell me about yourself that person needs fired and someone else needs to be taking interviews cuz they're lazy
Eunice Camacho ......Remember...You've already stated your other "experience's" on your Resume.They want to know a lil' about YOU yourself, try to carry-on a conversation with them. Don't be shy, let your real personality Shine. I don't totally agree with her. I'm much older and have had alot of experience in interview's. Good Luck !! ☺
Linda Rayiner I love this video but my question to this question is how long should I speaking when I was practicing this answer by following your idea it took more than 4 minutes to say is that too much how should I improve it
Why is this the opposite of what another professional channel says about interviews? A resume tells the story of your background. Why would you need to reiterate everything in 2 minutes or less? What if you have an extensive background? This seems appropriate for younger, recent grads. Believe it or not, "tell me about yourself" sometimes is exactly that. They want to know a little about yourself. After all, a whole person is coming to work for them, not just a robot with similar skills as the next applicant. But this is just my opinion on that part of the video. There are still some great takeaways from this, and I appreciate that there are channels like these at our fingertips ;)
I've always been pretty spoiled so aside from being overpaid to wash cars I don't have much to tell. BUT there was one job that I was quite proud of that I did for my grandpa. It was a logo design job (graphic design is my dream because of this job!) and was really fun and exciting to learn new things, please my grandpa, and do some "real" work. But every time I try to tell it in my head it get's too long, or too desperate sounding. Like I'm grasping at straws to say how great I am. But since it's the only "job" that could be considered real, there's no way I'm leaving it out since I actually am pretty desperate to meet my goals.. I set some crazy goals. Being financially independent from my parents by 18 and I'm turning 17 this month? -starts a timer for 365 days- *CHALLENGE ACCEPTED*
Everything I ever read, & was told by HR staff.... that in this question you don’t want to repeat what’s on your resume, because they can read that. This question is a chance to show what’s not on your resume. Sorry but I don’t agree with you
Hi Linda, WOW! Your tips and videos are simply amazing! I wish I had seen your videos and seeked advice from you during my job-hunting days! I've subscribed to your YT Channel and will be turning in from now and on! Thank you so much :-)
Please I have one question if they ask you: During when you work in office, you see your friend there what you're gonna do : greet him and finish your work ? Or ignore him like he is not there and finish your work? Or greet him and tell him he is not allowed to be there during work and he needs to be outside waiting for you outside ??? Thank you.
New sub. here! This is really useful for me right now because I'm planning to find a job in the next few months and I'm looking for the information/videos like these that'll surely help me to have that confidence. thank you and god bless you! 😊👍
How to do this question
1)= Has your life been different from or similar to that of kezia when you were a child? Has your perception about your parents changed now ? Do you find any change in your parents' behaviour vis-a-vis yours? Who has become more understanding? What steps would you like to take to build a relationship based on understanding? Write three or four paragraph (150-200 words) discussing these issues from your own experience
Do it and so me this question
I absolutely hate this question!! I have an interview next week and I really want to nail it and get the job but I feel like every time I'm asked this question I freeze up!!! I'm trying to get it together so thanks for the tips.
