What are you going to say?

Tell me about yourself. This question makes us cringe a little bit, but every employer will ask you this in some form during an interview. Why? Well because they want to see what YOU bring to their company. You might be wondering (or tempted) to tell your life story and be more personal, but don’t! When an interviewer says, Tell me about yourself, what he or she really wants to know is how your experience applies to the job you're interviewing

I hate when recruiters do that! Because they already have all information they need about you
