Sometimes, the simplest question can be the most difficult. How many times have you been asked the following question?
“So, tell me a little about yourself.”
I’ve always been an advocate of getting the most difficult things out of the way first. So to help you prepare for job interview questions, I feel compelled to deal with this, the absolute favorite question of all interviewers (okay, so it’s not really a question!) and the least favorite of most candidates. This little inquiry puts you on the spot in a way no other question can. It turns up the spotlight and your pulse and makes your throat go dry… especially if you are unprepared for it.
However, if you prepare, it gives you the opportunity to show interviewers the four traits they are looking for most in job candidates: enthusiasm, confidence, dependability, and intelligence.
