Transcript of "Hardest interview question"

  1. 1. World’s Hardest Interview QuestionThe following question is one of the most frequently asked question during an interview. Yet assimple as this question is, it is also the questions most frequently answered incorrectly.Tell me about yourself?Correct Response:You need to have a short statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not soundrehearsed. Limit it to work-related items unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you havedone and jobs you have held that relate to the position you are interviewing for. Start with theitem farthest back and work up to the present.The Wrong ResponseThere are many ways to respond to this question correctly and just one wrong way: by asking,“What do you want to know?” That tells me you have not prepared properly for the interviewand are likely to be equally unprepared on the job. You need to develop a good answer to thisquestion, practice it and be able to deliver it with poise and confidence.Rather than dread this question, a well-prepared candidate should welcome this inquiry. Properlyanswered, this question puts the candidate in the drivers seat. It gives them an opportunity to sellthemselves. It allows you to set the tone and direction for the rest of the interview, settingyourself up to answer the questions she most wants to answer.Reference: http://www.theladders.com/career-advice/how-to-answer-tell-me-about-yourself-interview-question
