Tell Me About Yourself, Not Your Life Story November 1, 2018

Tell Me About Yourself, Not Your Life Story

“Tell us about yourself.”

There’s one basic interview question that employers will always love starting out with – “Tell me about yourself.” 

Do you have an answer for it? If it includes anything about your personal life, it’s time to rethink your interviewing strategy.

Don’t worry – your favorite career sidekick, Skillgigs, has a simple one-two-three formula for answering this dreaded question like a pro. Keep reading for how to answer “tell me about yourself.”
