This is often because we take this question lightly and go to the interview without preparing it however This is a very simple question to see but a very important question to explain.

Now this 10 step process will help you to introduce yourself in any job interview in fact you can use this in any selection interview.

Some rules and go along with it, discuss some common mistakes, and how you can correct them.

Tell me about yourself?

This question comes in a number of different forms. 

For example, walk me through your background on a pass through your resume. But whatever it is, this is a trick question because the interviewer was asking them about. 

And in fact, they know everything about us like seeing that your resume.

So, exactly what are they asking us to tell them.

There are two things.

One, they want to know our attitude towards work and what kind of person am I.

Two, they want to know whether I'm a good fit for the job and what I can contribute to that company.

So, we need to catch their attention, and keep them interested, chances are they might have a full day looking at hundreds of applicants and look exactly like you.

Here's your opportunity to prove to them that you are best suited for the job and Get the ideas how the 10-step process work.

The first set of steps that you need to take are about Who are you, exploring yourself before presenting in front of other is important self determination and realization always help to be more focus and confident.

Step number one is called Greeting

Now, formal greetings are highly recommended like Good morning, before noon. Good afternoon, after noon, and good evening, any time after 4:30, or five in the evening all the way till midnight.

Smile, be confident and make good eye contact and common mistakes are like saying hey hi, and what’s up also fumbling between the Good morning, and the good optional.

Step number two express for opportunity

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 also helps both you and the interviewer relax a bit.

Step number three is your name

Now, I am I am Jone Andrew, or you can also say my name is Jone Andrew. The rule is to smile, to be proud of her name, and to enunciate Clearly,

Here, some common mistakes are a thing myself Jone Andrew or calling yourself Mr. or Miss.

Now the question you have right now is should I use my full name, and the answer is yes, always, please using your full name.

Yes, 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 were the name of the company. The number of years, any awards that you 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 and 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 build some key relationships,

Example. I am an HR manager and blah blah blah. Moving on to the key functions of recruitment compensation learning and development. I have over five years of experience in the field.
Now the rules for this step one sound enthusiastic about your work to 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.

Elaborate something, over and above what they can already read in your resume.

if you make a claim, try to give some proof to make 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 back was only if it's highly relevant or very important. Otherwise your resume covers all of that.

Step number five is qualifications

If you are a fresher, you're not going to be able to answer step number four, and you're gonna jump right into step number five.

So, let's see some examples. I'm a recent MBA from XYZ institute with prior work experience in the pharmaceutical sector, or I have completed a Bachelor's in mass media degree with a specialization in public relations and corporate communications or I am currently pursuing a five-year integrated law program and dash school, with a focus on cyber law.

If your college is prominent and well known mentioned it. Otherwise, let it pass.

Some common mistake So, if you're a fresher than just one line like I'm a software engineer from so until school doesn't see me now. So, this is your chance to add achievement oriented many stories.

For example, I was part of the research project on how modern technologies change the way of teaching in the future, where we worked with an ed-tech company to evaluate the efficacy of some based teaching intervention.

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 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, and also understand the motivations of today's use 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 pressure. When 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 six 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 top doctor. I am proficient in German and Spanish. I have learned dotnet Java and Python on Coursera, which will help 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 can be versatile easy-going solution oriented determined team player, or just someone who enjoys working with others.

Step number eight is called hobbies and passions

This is optional, but you want to until this, if this helps you build a connect with the interviewer. If you think they are significant. Or it helps you establish some skills, the new one is demonstrating to them.

For example, I am a trained singer, and the daily rehearse has taught me self-discipline and dedication or I am a keen runner, keep very brief as possible.

Step number nine is family

So, this is optional. I would typically leave it out of a standard introduction, but you can choose to use it strategically. If you wish,

For example, my mother being a housewife, and during my vacation. I had to set up a small tailoring boutique at home with my savings from work, or my father is a farmer, and I helped set up a process where he could directly sell his produce at the farmers market and bypass the middleman.

Alternatively, you can use this technique to answer this question on family when the interviewer poses this question to you later on during the interview.

Step number 10 is called closing

Three type of questions is why you're here.

This is the point where you tell the interviewer.

Why are you here.
Why, applying for this job.
why you were right fit for this job.

You can also use your future plans and connect them to the company's goals.

Some time we use general statement but you can make it more specific and suited to the company, or you can show your research that you've done about the company and add a little bit of flattery to it as well at this point.

And you can end your introduction by saying, that's all from me, Thank you

some rules to follow for step number, 10, a read the job description so you can get some words from there that you can cleverly fit into this answer.

And second, sound enthusiastic about the position.

And now some final tips

Write down your personal introduction related to Tell me about yourself and make sure you when you did your top selling points for that position. This will vary from company to company, so make sure you change that and customize that every time you walk into an interview.

key points, don't memorize the entire introduction, or you're gonna sound like a robot, let a little bit of spontaneity come in and don't worry too much about the grammatical errors that you think you might make.


Keep entire introduction to about a minute even two minutes is long, I would think, one-minute top is sufficient to explain.

Maintain good eye contact and look confident while giving all these answers. If there are more than one people sitting in the room, and only one person who asked you the question.

Don't answer the entire question looking at just that one person looks at everyone around the room smile, relax, breathe and remain confident.

Use a storytelling mode to Tell me about yourself, your accomplishments. you can use hand gestures, if you wish. Don't go over the top but you can use some gestures. Also, sound, excited, happy about everything that you've done in the past, and everything that you're going to do in the future.
