Answer “Tell Me About Yourself” Like A Pro
Date: Thursday, August 5th
Time: 3:00 pm EST (12:00 pm PST, 1:00 pm MST, 2:00 pm CST)
Description: Most interviewers start interviews with the question “Tell me about yourself?” The answer to this question is often included in a hiring authorities’ first impression and can often lead to you being screened out of the interview process.
Instead of dreading this question, role-play your response with others and make adjustments based on the feedback you receive. It’s better to be over-prepared than to have your answer sabotage your interview. During this session, we will address the following three topics:
• What employers look for in your answer
• How to effectively format your response
• Great follow up responses
