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!
This video will share with you five things you should never say in a job interview. You must be careful in a job interview to make sure you know what to say and what to avoid saying. Most people screw up their interviews by blurting out things they never should say and ruin their chances for moving farther in the interview process.
Some of the examples I used in this video or things I say might not be true for you, so if they are not true for you, I'm not telling you to lie. I want you to be truthful and at the same time, I don't want you to stick your foot in your mouth.
I always suggest avoiding saying negative things about your past boss or company. Even if your boss was terrible, I think it's better to find one honest, true and GOOD thing you can say about him/her.
If you walk into an interview and start trash-talking your boss, your interviewer might think that the problem is with you and not your boss. but like I said, even the worst people usually have one kind thing you can say about them.
Don't talk badly about your company. Don’t talk bad about the people. Don't say that you didn't like working there; no matter how it comes up.
A lot of candidates go in and they're so desperate to work at a job they'll say, “I'll do anything. It doesn't matter what it is; I'll do anything.” Now, these are usually people who are not employed right now (maybe they've been out of work for six to nine months, maybe even two years) and they are desperate for a job and they will do anything.
