It’s the most feared question during any job interview: Can you tell me about yourself? Before I share a list of 10 me morable answers, consider the two essential elements behind the answers:
The medium is the message. The interviewer cares less about your answer to this question and more about the confidence, enthusiasm and passion with which you answer it. The speed of the response is the response. The biggest mistake you could make is pausing, stalling or fumbling at the onset of your answer, thus demonstrating a lack of selfawareness and self-esteem.
第 1 招：立即抓住眼球
“I can summarize who I am in three words.” Grabs their attention immediately. Demonstrates your ability to be concise, creative and compelling.
第 2 招：座右铭
“The quotation I live my life by is…” Proves that personal development is an essential part of your growth plan. Also shows your ability to motivate yourself.
第 3 招：人生观
“My personal philosophy is…” Companies hire athletes–not shortstops.
This line indicates your position as a thinker, not just an employee.
第 4 招：自我认知
“People who know me best say that I’m…” This response offers insight into your own level of self-awareness.
第 5 条：“今早我百度了一下自己的名字，结果发现了这个…”
“Well, I googled myself this morning, and here’s what I found…” Tech-savvy, fun, cool people would say this. Unexpected and memorable.
第 6 条：你热爱什么?
“My passion is…” People don’t care what you do – people care who you are.And what you’re passionate about is who you are. Plus, passion unearths enthusiasm.
第 7 条：“我从 7 岁开始就…”
“When I was seven years old, I always wanted to be…” An answer like this shows that you’ve been preparing for this job your whole life, not just the night before.
第 8 条：“如果把我的人生拍成电影，那名字应该是…”
“If Hollywood made a movie about my life, it would be called…” Engaging, interesting and entertaining.
第 9 条：让自己从口袋里跳出来!
“Can I show you, instead of telling you?” Then, pull something out of your pocket that represents who you are. Who could resist this answer? Who could forget this answer?
第 10 条：“朋友们一般这么夸我”
“The compliment people give me most frequently is…”
Almost like a testimonial, this response also indicates self-awareness and openness to feedback. Keep in mind that these examples are just the opener. The secret is thinking how you will follow up each answer with relevant, interesting and concise explanations that make the already bored interviewer look up from his stale coffee and think, “Wow! That’s the best answer I’ve heard all day!”
