In this video, you will learn how to describe yourself in an interview. How you describe yourself at the start of your job interview is going to be the difference between a pass and a fail. If you don’t get your interview off to a flying start, you are unlikely to pass!
This video COVER THE FOLLOWING 3 THINGS DURING THIS JOB INTERVIEW
I will explain why the interviewer is asking you to describe yourself and, more importantly, what they want to hear in your response.
I will tell you the 5 most important words you should use when describing yourself in an interview that is guaranteed to impress the hiring manager.
I will give you 3 brilliant example scripts you can use to describe yourself positively during your interview that will make you the stand-out candidate!
WHY IS THE INTERVIEWER ASKING YOU TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF, AND WHAT DO THEY WANT TO HEAR IN YOUR ANSWER?
The interviewer will or may ask you one of the following 3 questions right at the start of your job interview:
- Tell me about yourself.
- Introduce yourself.
- How would you describe yourself?
Whichever question they ask you, this is where you need to describe yourself in a way that sets the rest of the interview up in a positive manner. If you don’t describe yourself in a way that the interviewer finds appealing, you will quickly lose confidence, and the interview could go down downhill rapidly.
THE INTERVIEWER IS ASKING YOU TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF FOR 2 REASONS:
REASON 1. When you describe yourself in an interview, it gives you the chance to talk about something you should know really well, and that is yourself! It allows you to get into the flow of the interview, it breaks the ice, and it helps you to create a positive first impression.
REASON 2. This is because the interviewer wants to quickly assess whether or not your skills, traits, and attributes are going to be a fit for their team and the role you have applied for.
So, if the interviewer thinks you can ADD VALUE to their company, they will definitely be interested in hiring you.
However, if the manner in which you describe yourself at the start of your interview is weak, and it is not aligned to their company values, or what they are looking for, the interview could be cut short!
To make the story short, I will be brief on the introduction: I was working as a Facility Coordinator, and I loved it. I got this Facility through a year long transition. The day I confirmed it was complete, my boss flew up to my location and relieved me of my assignment. I've recieved nothing but the highest of praises. I did accidentally break the email chain a few times, but who doesn't? Particularly when policy changes every week.. Any way, now I'm on the job hunt. I landed one already, but I had to turn it down after they offered me half of the listing salary. I now have an interview on Saturday for a good position in a drink manufacturing facility. Also, I received an offer through email for a high position at a Crypto Currency firm. I'm ecstatic and very hopeful that one, if not both of these opportunities are obtainable. I'm excellent at interviews, and I always pull my weight. I've been going through this losing my job at "no fault of my own" maze for a decade now. I'm over it, and ready to get established. Please pray for me! Thanks everyone for reading my post.
Hi Jobcase Community unfortunately inhave no job since last Friday. And if i do get future interviews what can i say about that one manager treated me unfairly or bullying we know we do not suppose to talk about manager or the previous job how to handle that question if i am asked about it.
Would appreciate any feedback on the interview process. I am looking at interview webinars and tips. I hope this is the job for now.
Hi Ellenor: It looks like they want to know what strengths and weaknesses you have, and how that might affect their organization. Like, if you tend to procrastinate (weakness), that could be a bad thing for the other people you work with. I suggest mentioning a weakness you've improved on over the past few years. That way, you're showing employers you're not afraid to work on yourself.
