When an interviewer says, “tell me about yourself,” they’re not asking for your life story. Knowing how to give a concise, relevant and personal response is a sure way to impress at your next interview.
This brief workshop, presented in partnership with the North Star STEM Alliance, will cover how to effectively tell your story by crafting an “elevator pitch” that not only introduces yourself, but tells an employer just what they need to know.
As you follow along with the workshop, we recommend you reference these handouts:
- Elevator pitch examples
- How to Answer “Tell Me About Yourself” (Tips and Example Answers)
- Tell me about yourself examples
- 8 More Tips for Answering “Tell Me About Yourself”
This workshop was recorded live on December 2nd. It has been edited for brevity and clarity.
