The dreaded interview question, "Tell me about yourself," stumps a lot of folks. People of all ages and experience levels often fail to answer this one correctly, in a way that conveys meaningful information to the interviewer—information they will actually use to consider your candidacy.
'‘Tell me about yourself’ is a common question employers use to start job interviews. Answered well, this is a prime opportunity to impress them, set the tone for the entire interview, and sell yourself for the job. Answered badly and you’ve wasted the opportunity and possibly even caused them to doubt that you are the person they’re looking for.
