Have you found yourself rambling your way through a vague answer to the interview question: Tell me about yourself?
It’s usually the first job interview question you are asked and...It’s one of the most open-ended questions you’ll face in an interview and one of the most important.
Many job seekers stumble on this difficult interview question, but you don’t have to!
How you respond to the question "Tell me about yourself" can set the tone for the rest of the interview.
The secret is to tell a great story that highlights your specific work experience that is relevant to the job you are interviewing for, in no more than 2 minutes.
We’re going to show you 3 simple steps to answer this question like a pro!
For example: I started my career in digital marketing, but a few years ago I was drawn to email marketing in-specific. I always had a knack for growth tactics and working as a team to achieve common goals. In my previous role, my company made the decision to focus primarily on email marketing and wanted to grow its list of email subscribers quite aggressively.
For example: As the email marketing manager, my goal was to grow our email list by at least 50% in just one quarter. I started by reviewing our old blog posts and adding content upgrades that incentivized email subscriptions - giving our list an immediate boost. Next, I worked with the rest of the marketing team to plan and host a webinar where an email address was required for registration, which added more interested users to our list.
As a result of those additions to our email strategy, I was able to increase our subscriber list from 25,000 to 40,000 within three months - exceeding our target by 20%.
Make no mistake: practicing is definitely something you should do for your next job interview.
Whether it's a mock interview or just practicing your interview answer in the mirror, talk through your answer out loud so it feels natural and comfortable when you're actually in the job interview.
With a little preparation and strategy, job interviews will soon be less stressful - and more of an opportunity to get a job you love and build a career you're passionate about.

Do you have any questions?” is one of the top interview questions employers ask. The most common answer to this interview question is NO.

So here are 5 questions I wish job seekers had the confidence to ask in their next job interview!
