A very common question that is asked by every interviewer:
Question: Tell me something about yourself?
Human Resource Manager asks you to introduce yourself. The reason behind asking this question is to know how well you introduce yourself and to know as much as possible about you. This question is not only asked for fresher but also for an experienced candidate.
Answer: You have to give the best possible introduction of yourself. Make sure you start with your name and talk about your studies, family members, hobbies, and areas of interest. The answer should be in such a way that there is nothing left to ask about you. Look into the interviewer’s eyes and introduce yourself confidently, also carry a smile in your face.
Example: Start like this “ My Name is (your name). I am from (your place), graduated in (course). My family consists of ……… members. My Father is a …….., my mother is a ……….Speak about other family members. My Hobbies are playing chess, playing cricket, Blogging…. Etc. Never forget to mention about awards that you got during graduation. (if any)
