Qus: Tell me about yourself ?
Its a routine question, not specific to an interview or company or technology. But still, i would like to list down the steps one should follow while answering to this one:
Step 1: Give a brief introduction about yourself:For example: My name is XYZ. I graduated from XYZ University with bachelor degree in Sales. After 5 years working as a Sales Manager, I have well experienced in training, mentoring and motivating other sales personnel to achieve the goals of the Company.
Step 2: Give a brief summary of your experience in your latest positions:Give a summary of 2-3 latest companies that you have worked for and companies that have helped you succeed with your new jobs.For example: recently, I have worked for ABC Company as Sales Manager for North-East Region. With my skills from training courses, I developed many sales campaigns which contributed much to the development of new customers and maintenance of current customer base.After 6 months, my sales force and I did regain the company’s market and promote the sales revenue up by37%.
Step 3: Connect your ability to the employer’s requirements:Never assume that the employer will by himself be able to connect all of your abilities to the job requirements.Step 4: Make a concerning question:With a concerning question, it will help you gain “control”of the interview. You may reduce the stress of the interview with such questions.For example: I would like to know the strong points of your company’s current Sales force.
