TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF: the masterclass by Kerri Twigg

TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF: the masterclass

My favorite part of the interview

My very favorite part of the interview is when they say, "tell me about yourself." 

SWOON. 

This is the place where you lay the seeds for everything you'll back up later in the interview.  

It's where you can seal making a great impression & get the interviewer thinking, "I AM SO GLAD WE ARE INTERVIEWING THIS PERSON." 

WHERE YOU GO WRONG

It's easy to mess this one up. I've heard of people that:

  • talk about their personal life
  • repeat an old script that has nothing to do with the job they are going for
  • tell a long-winded answer that lists titles and dates and they kept "and then," "and then," and, "and then."
  • undersell themselves by making it too short 
  • tell irrelevant stories
  • try to wing it and  freeze instead
  • say it robotically
  • don't understand how important this answer is

This question is really asking this:

"Sum up for us what your strategic advantage is and what it can do for us." 


WHY IS THIS ANSWER SO IMPORTANT

It sets the tone for the entire interview.

If you give a long-winded or irrelevant answer, you're sending the signal that you're not the right candidate.

If you mess this one up, you have to say SEVEN awesome answers to get back to neutral. And sometimes, interviews will be cut short if the first impression is not strong enough. Unfair, I know. But...if they think everyone is wasting their time, why wouldn't they cut it short?

If you can get this answer right, it'll boost your confidence and set you at ease for the rest of the interview. You can be deliberate about what you share and highlight. You can set the tone by nailing this answer. 

You can nail this answer

You can be incredible at your interview.

You can show up as yourself. Speak as you do. Use your own words. Share your favorite stories. And leave the interviewers excited about you. Once you know the methods on how to prepare this answer, you'll be confident talking about yourself to anyone. 

It's not bragging. It's helping others to see how you help them. 

You've got this.
