How to answer “Tell Me About Yourself” in an interview

Are you prepared for questions you may be asked during an interview? Especially the “Tell me about yourself” question?

You might think you can just come up with a brilliant answer during the interview, but you may be very nervous and forget what you wanted to say. Write a script and practice the answer to this question.

Here is some information from Quintessential Careers on how to prepare:

Search for a company, find a job

How is your job search going? If you are searching for jobs online only, you might not realize that some jobs are filled within a company and are never even posted online.

How can you be on the inside of these companies? See this post at Quintessential Careers for some ideas on how to tap into the “hidden” job market:
