Better Stories?

I need to come up with a better answer to this popular but dreaded interview question… “Tell me about yourself?” I hate it when they ask me this question! It's so frustrating trying to decipher exactly what the interviewer is looking for in my answer. I usually respond with a brief summary of my education background, job history, and skills but all that’s information employers already see on my resume. I feel like I’m wasting an opportunity to set up good rapport and engage managers with valuable information that’s going to set me apart from every other applicant. Tired of playing back the same old record! I’ve read that it’s better to be more of a storyteller during interviews but I have no ideas how to prepare to do this. Any suggestions?
