Today I'm going to give you a ten step process to help you answer this trick question which appears in every job interview, so hey this is Mehvish and thumbs up if you like our work also if you'd like to join our vibrant student communities on whatsapp, then here's the number on the blog in this post I'm going to give you one a simple ten step.


Process to help you introduce yourself in any job interview, in fact you can use this in any selection interview, second I'm going to give you some rules that go along with each step and third I'm going to talk about some common mistakes and how you can correct them. I'm also going to give you some stock phrases that you can use in your introduction, if English is not your first language and at the end of this post, I'm going to give you a complete introduction that you can use with your own customization.

Tell me about yourself this question comes in a number of different forms, for example walk me through your background or take us through your resume but whatever it is.

This is a trick question because the interviewers asking us to tell them about ourselves, and in fact they know everything about us, by seeing that resume so exactly what are they asking us to tell them. They're asking us for two things one they want to know our attitude, 

towards work what kind of a person, am i - they want to know whether I'm a good fit for the job, and what I can contribute to the company so we need to catch their attention and keep them interested. Chances are they've had a full day looking at hundreds of applicants,
that look exactly like you here's your opportunity to prove to them, that you are best suited for the job and now on to that 10 step process, the first set of steps that you need to take are about, who are you step number one is called greetings,

now formal greetings are highly recommended like good morning, before 12 known good afternoon after 12 known and good evening anytime after 4:30 or 5:00 in the evening. All the way till midnight rules smile be confident and make good eye contact and common mistakes are like saying. Hey hi what's up and also fumbling between the good morning and the good afternoon.

Step number 2 thank you for the opportunity this is an optional step and depending upon the situation, you could either say thank you for shortlisting me for the final interview, or thank you for this opportunity to talk about myself.

Now this will not only create a good first impression, but it'll also help both you and the interviewer relax a bit step Step number three is your name, now I am Mehvish I'm Mehvish Khan or you can also say my name is or my name's the rule is to smile to be proud of your name,
and to enunciate it clearly and some common mistakes, here are a saying myself Mehvish Khan or calling yourself mister or miss now the question you have right now is should, I use my full name and the answer is yes always.

Please use your full name because simply using your first name may sound a little casual. Category two type of questions are about why you're qualified step number four position and company,
if you have work experience then this is the time to tell them about the position, you held the name of the company the number of years any awards,
that you've won and what impact you've had on the company what difference, you've made to them for example for the last five years I have been the sales manager at dot dot leading a small sales team and our team was awarded the best sales team of the year for two years in a row I have worked closely.

With clients and built some key relationships, example I am an HR manager at blah blah blah looking after the key functions of recruitment compensation Learning and Development.

I have over 5 years of experience in the field and we have been able to increase our employee productivity by 8 percent during this period, now the rules for this step one sound enthusiastic about your work. Two don't sound very pompous like, I am a leader I've done everything try to make it sound like you're a good team player, rule number three tell them something over and above what they can already read in your resume,

and the fourth rule is if you make a claim try to give some proof to make it credible and believable the question, you want to ask me right now is should i start with my most recent position and go backwards or should.

I start with my earliest work experience and come forward and the answer to that is always start with your most recent position, 
and talk about it and go backwards only if it's highly relevant or very important otherwise your resume covers all of that. 

Step number five is qualifications if you're a fresher you're not going to be able to answer step number four and you're going to jump right into step number five so let's see some examples, I'm a recent MBA from with prior work experience in the pharmaceutical sector or I have completed a bachelor's in mass media degree, with a specialisation in public relations and corporate communications, or I am currently pursuing a five-year integrated law program at - school with a focus on cyber law.

If your college is prominent and well-known mention, it otherwise let it pass common mistake I am a bmm from NMIMS mm-hmm.

So if you are a fresher than just one line like I'm a software engineer from so-and-so school, doesn't seem enough so this is your chance to add achievement oriented  mini stories for example.

I was part of the research project on how modern technologies changed the way of teaching in the future, where we worked with an ed tech company to evaluate the efficacy of some tech based teaching interventions, make sure you talk about a project in an area that's relevant to the employer and if the area is not directly relevant.

How about you talk about some skills that could be relevant for example,
you've recently done a project called the impact of gaming consoles on the youth, 
and you're just about to appear for an interview with a food marketing company.

So how about you say this to them this project helped us understand motivations of today's youths, and how to attract their attention with our products and services, you can also talk about any training program courses or other experiences that you might have had during your graduation question should I mention my CGPA when I'm just a fresher well normally.

I would avoid it because it's already there on your resume but if you want to highlight your academic achievements. How about saying something like I've consistently been in the top 1% or 5% of my class step number 6 additional qualifications, this may include any outside courses that you did skills that you gained or awards that. 

You want for example I have completed a six-month computer animation course from ... I'm proficient in German and Spanish I have learnt dotnet Java and Python on Coursera which have helped me in completing a project on so on and, so forth step number seven is called adjectives now use some adjectives to describe yourself to the interviewer,
for example you could be versatile easygoing solution-oriented determined team player, or just someone who enjoys working with others, now if at this point you're worrying about English,
and you're saying hey English is not my first language, and how am I going to be able to say all of this, then I'm gonna introduce you to this app called google Translater, that I use a lot where you can connect with English tutors from around the world, and there are native speakers and you can brush up your conversational English.

So let's quickly call one of them up and find out what they have to say about tell me something about yourself, well I think it's very good to be authentic, you know authentic is yes so it means to be very real and be yourself,
you should definitely use a complicated vocabulary and complicated grammatical structures as long as it doesn't interfere with, who you are and how you present yourself and the good news is that Google Translate, has offered any users an exclusive  when you use the code unknown so the code is right here and I'm going to give you a link in the Comment box as well. 
this is optional but you want to include this if this helps you build a connect with the interviewer, if you think they are significant or it helps you establish some skills, that you want to demonstrate to them for example.

I love my current role I feel I'm now ready for a more challenging assignment and this position really excites me, this is a very general statement and you can make it more specific and suited to the company, or you can show off your research that you've done about the company and add a little bit of flattery to it as well at this point for example with my passion for sport and my skills of data analytics.

Right now I'm looking for an opportunity to apply my marketing expertise along with my creative problem, solving skills to an innovative marketing company like yours, I'm sure your introduction to the question, tell me about yourself will be even more powerful than.

What I've been able to show you and I hope I've been of help and thank you so much for reading my post right till the end wish you all the best for that and give us a thumbs up because that tells us that you like our work Thank You.
