Tip 1: Professional Aspects Only
The interviewer doesn’t want to hear about how many chicken wings you ate in 5 mins or how awesome you sing. Stick to the professional aspects of your life by telling your strengths and weaknesses, what you are good at and what you are bad at, and so on. Keep it simple and professional.
Tip 2: Team Player
These days, companies are looking for candidates who can be team players. Using an I in your words will show them that you are self-absorbed but using a WE in your sentences make a huge difference by showing them that you are a team player and you are ready to roll. Hiring an employee who can’t get along with co-workers can be a costly mistake.
Tip 3: Refrain from Job Bashing
Avoid placing blame on others for things that happened in your work history. It’s not worth it, and it shows a sense of misdirection and chaos for you, later in life. So refrain from bad mouthing and just focus on doing a good job in your interview.
Tip 4: Make eye contact
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’s always a good thing to look at your interviewer in the eye and talk to him about your professional life.
Tip 5: Prepare ahead of time
You should spend as much or more time preparing for an interview as you did preparing for any test you’ve taken. Please learn about the company. If it’s online, you should have already read it when you show up for your interview. Prepare responses in advance, and practice those responses.
