  3. 3. TIP 1: PREPARATION 3 Before you even have your first interview, you really should know yourself when it comes to the qualifications of the job and if you would be a match for the company. In order to learn this, you need to: 1. Research the company. 2. Identify, catalog, list, and then review your strengths, values, and expertise. 3. Practice, Practice, Practice, so that you will sound confident and natural. Only then, will you be ready to put yourself in the shoes of the employer and emphasize what will really make you stand out for this job and the company.

TIP 2: DON’T TELL YOUR LIFE STORY, SIMPLY TELL THEM ABOUT THE FIVE KEYS BELOW In order to be able to effectively answer the question that most employers will ask during an interview, “tell me about yourself”, you should break your answer down into 5 easy categories.

Reason for your interest in the company 4 Useful post: http://www.SuccessSecrets247.com/2017/03/24-books-must-read-in-your- lifetime.html
  5. 5. TIP 3: HIGHLIGHT KEY POINTS ABOUT YOUR-SELF THAT RELATE TO THE JOB If this will be your first job, then you should discuss your educational background and any group or volunteer work that you have done, as well as any job experience that would show off your good qualities and skills. If this isn't your first job, then highlight any previous job experiences and positive results that you have achieved in different projects. Exact figures and numbers on how much money that you have saved or made for a company will be music to a future employer's ears. Ensure that you mention if you had exceeded a prior employer's expectations or performance goals. You can ensure that you will be asked how you plan to do this for their company. 5 Useful post: http://www.jobguide247.info/2017/11/12-secrets-to-become-super- communicator.html
  6. 6. TIP 4: TREAT THIS QUESTION AS A VALUABLE OPPORTUNITY AND ANSWER WITH CONFIDENCE Take a deep breath, smile, and then explain to your interviewer when you developed an interest in the field you picked, where and how you achieved your first step up this particular ladder, and what type of special areas of interest brought you into this corner of the industry and this company. 6 Useful post: http://www.SuccessSecrets247.com/2017/03/6-tips-to-become-super- learner.html
  7. 7. TIP 5: TELL YOUR CAREER STORY Your interviewer won't directly say, but they are asking about your professional life only and not your personal life. If you have to, you can mention about how you met your first industry contact at a friend's wedding or how your parents inspired you. Otherwise, keep all the personal talk to a very low minimum. 7 Useful post: http://www.jobguide247.info/2017/11/33-secrets-to-become-great- manager.html
  8. 8. TIP 6: DON’T WING IT If you try to give a response to a very awkward interview question on the spot, you may forget some important information that would sum up your background and experience. You should really think about this question before responding, and try to shorten your response in a straight to the point summary. 8 Useful post: http://www.jobguide247.info/2017/11/top-32-management-books-of-all- time.html
  9. 9. TIP 7: STICK TO THE PROFESSIONAL ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE Even if you can bench press two hundred pounds in the gym or can rattle off every popular movie line from the early ’90s, your job interview isn’t the time or place to revel these skills to the hiring manager. A better move: keep it professional. Focus on those things that will make you a good employee and demonstrates how you would be a great fit for the company, says Kim Costa, job coach at Snagajob. She says to use the SET method when answering, which includes providing information about your skills, experience and time you’ve been using those skills. “It shows you are well-rounded and gives the employer a sense of what you bring to the table,” says Costa. 9 Useful post: http://www.successsecrets247.com/2017/03/12-principles-to-success-in- life.html
  10. 10. TIP 8: WEAVE “WE” INTO YOUR ANSWER Now more than ever companies are looking for job candidates who can play well with others. Hiring an employee who can’t get along with co-workers can be a costly mistake. One way to demonstrate just what a team player you really are is to weave the word “We” into your answer to the “tell me about yourself” question, says Terra. Instead of saying I was responsible for boosting sales x percent say our team lead the charge to increase revenue for the company, for example. 10 Useful post: http://www.successsecrets247.com/2017/11/20-secrets-will-change-your- life.html
  11. 11. TIP 9: REFRAIN FROM BOSS OR JOB BASHING Talking about your previous job or past experience is unavoidable but what you don’t want to do is bash your former employer, says LaMere. By doing that you’ll raise red flags about your attitude, loyalty and worse, whether or not you will do the same thing again when you move on to your next opportunity. “If you had a negative experience, keep the subject out of the conversation unless you can turn that negative experience into a conversation about lessons learned,” says LaMere. “Instead talk about what excites you about the career path that you are in or your previous work experience leading up to your present career.” 11 Useful post: 18 secrets for success from billionaires http://www.successsecrets247.com/2017/11/secrets-for-success-from-billionaires.html
  12. 12. TIP 10: MAKE EYE CONTACT THROUGHOUT YOUR ANSWER Making eye contact has a lot of benefits. It shows confidence, honesty and your level of interest. When it comes to the “tell me about yourself” interview question, it can also cue you in if you are droning on and on, boring the interviewer. “It’s never a good sign if the hiring manger looks down or doesn’t make eye contact,” says Costa of Snagajob. “If they are looking around the room then wrap it up and go on to the next question.” 12 Useful post: http://www.BusinessSecrets88.com/2017/11/7-ways-to-make-passive- income-off-all-time.html
