Because you think about it? They’re saying, “Tell me about yourself”. They’re not saying, “Tell me about all the great things that you did”. They want to know about you as a person. And so, this is like the only question that you have the opportunity to get personal with them. And when you get personal with someone, that gives you the opportunity to make a connection; a long lasting connection.
And that’s what you want in the interview. You want to connect with that employer or that recruiter, that interviewer, so that they remember you, so that they see that you are a unique individual; you’re a real person and they want to know more about you.
So, when they ask you, “Tell me about yourself”, instead of giving them that cold response, and really, what a lot of people are doing is they’re just answering the question, “Why are you qualified for this job?” That’s the type of answer that you’re giving when you’re telling them about just your experience and your accomplishments.
So, actually tell them about you, and the way you can do that is to talk about your journey through your career; like how you got started, what sparked your interest and then what are your next steps? What did you do? How did you first explore that passion? Did you go to college? Did you work somewhere? And talk about your journey through your career up to where you’re at now, and then you end with where you see yourself going.
