One should take the opportunity to show his/her communication skills by speaking clearly and concisely in an organized manner. Since there is no right or wrong answer for this question hence it is important to appear friendly.

The answers can be:

1) I am a person with strong interpersonal skills and have the ability to get along well with people. I enjoy challenges and looking for creative solutions to problems.

2)Besides the details given in my resume, I believe in character values, vision and action. I am quick in learning from mistakes. I am confident that the various tests that you have conducted will corroborate my competencies aptitude and right attitude for the job.

3) I attended GIET where I majored in Electronics & Communication Engineering. My hobbies include basketball, reading novels and hiking. I’m an easy going person that works well with everyone. I enjoy being around different types of people and I always like to challenge myself to improve at everything I do.

Always the question, tell me something about yourself, or tell me more about yourself is a very tricky question. Any first time interviewee gets confused as to what to say about him or her. Most of the time, this question, turns out to be a quite intriguing one.

One have to tell the exact truth about the activities, both academic and extracurricular. Also it should be a true information. Some interviewers would ask this question on personal grounds too, where in the answer will be about you, your parents, siblings and if you are married about your spouse and kids.

But when answering this question, one should never panic.

Hi All,
Yes I don't forget this question, as its my first HR question when I was Interviewed, thanks to google that I came to know what are the questions will be put up by HR, belive me I prepared a small note to tell about myself, one suggestion from my side is just stick to one word and tell the same what ever the way HR asks you the question, sometimes they want to check your answer coming in same way as earlier with different types of questions.. All the Best and don't feel shy to prepare a notes about some points on you before you enter HR room ..

Yes this is a question which we can expect from all the interviews you attain. The interviewer will ask this question so that the candidate will give a brief introduction about himself. By the communication which the candidate gives the interviewer will understand his capacity and capability to work. This actually judges his capacity.

Thanks for giving hints on how we have to answer in the interview. This will certainly help everybody as job hopping is most common.

Best regards,
