Giving a snapshot of your work history is a good idea, but talking through each role is only really valuable if you're relatively new to the workforce. If you've held many positions (4+), you're probably going to lose the interviewer's interest by going through every one. 💡 Sticking to the highlights keeps it interesting and also manageable to remember. ⏳
I LOVE this video and will use a lot of the great tips discussed! However, I do think that if you've had several jobs and ones where the experience is not relevant to the position you're applying for; starting from the beginning will just be too long and lose the interviewers interest. ;\
Wrong, never go back to the starting of your employment history. Always use your RELEVANT work history example, they have your resume to see ALL the jobs you've done. Don't bore the interviewer, instead focus on giving them what they need regarding the specific position.
Dear Linda, I haven't got any chances to say it but here I am. I would want to thank you for all of your tips, I learned a lot from your videos and got the ideal job that I always wanted. I can't thank you enough but please keep producing more and more quality videos. Thank you Thank you Thank you!
but in my case when i talk to someone seriously ive always got mental blocked like for example my teacher whom is my crush ask me a question although i have an idea or a answer i cannot speak well in tune
What about personality? So many companies now are looking for that perfect personality fit that would work well within their culture. Yes I agree career-professionalism is good to talk about when talking about themselves, but at what point can we be less of a robot...and and just spice up the interview with personality? Thanks.
I don’t think it is necessary to tell the interviewer about your work experiences or your previous position when they ask you to tell them about yourself. It’s already written on your CV. Before you were shortlisted for interview they have already read your CV. All you have to say, for me, when you are being asked by this question, are things about you that is not written or presented on your CV. It can be your attitude towards work, how you handle problems about work or even collegues. Tell them who you are as a person and as an employee. Just my opinion. ✌🏼
This was a really great presentation on how to answer this question. Interviewing has become an art even if you are just trying to get a job at a walmart. There has been a great change and advancement not only in the professional realm, but in society as a whole, with the help of social media. We individually have to stay up to date and educated on everything around us. This will allow us to communicate and compete with the fastly growing and more educated competition. Thank you Ms. Raynier, for your great work.
This is a very useful video. I used your tips in this video on my interview question tell me something about yourself. It triggers big interaction and interests from my interviewer, even though she was doing a phone interview, and I finally got the job after second round. So thanks!!
This are all old ways of starting a conversation. I have been asked this many a times and my approach has been totally different.
My answer, Well Sir surely I will be pleased to answer that but before I proceed may I please know what you have understood of me as a professional as I am sure you have gone through my profile/resume.
Allow him to brief about me....... and than based on the research done about the company, I will start telling about myself in line to the company's requirement and thrive to take the discussion/interraction to the next level of productive interesting subject for mutual benefit.
Thanks With Best Regards,
Good morning Linda, thank you for the interview tips, informative video. Funny you mentioned that question, " Tell Me About Yourself, " just finished second interviewed with the director of a Health Care Company and sure enough, she asked!! I do need to update my resume, can you please send me your Resume Tips :) Thanks Kim
is so truth that sometimes people who interview you they gave so many questions too many sometimes is just crazy !...and sometimes they want you to know so much !...and at the and you get base pay of 10 or less?...but he quality of interview was still the same ….You think sometimes that the job you applying for pays 150 thousands …..I am saying do not give so many question's to somebody who wants to work for 8$?come on already !.....that kind of interview should be given to people who would get pay much more and have already lots of experience I think....then I say ..yes ask me more because you pay me more
I know! I had a 2 hour interview with questions like "How was my childhood?" for 10.00 hour job. He literally wrote down everything I was saying like a book. I stayed 3 days. It was a horrible job, but the interview was insane and a complete waste of my time. BTW, I had no idea how much the job paid before the interview.
Hi Linda, my name is Roberto from Brazil but and I am living and working in Costa Rica. I am so happy for what you helped me to achieve. I followed you and watched your videos for hours and hours for 2 days, Guess what? I succeed in my interview to take the job of my dreams. I love you!
Really they don't want to hear about your personal life?...... How would you feel if I tell you that I was interviewed 1.for financial controler position 2. in an international solid huge group 3. by the CFO of the plant and.... she is saying: 1.Tell me about your husband? 3. What was your occupation in the periods that you was not employed? 3. What and where from were your financial income while you were building your house?
I would really appreciate if you could come with some reaction or evaluation or answers to such kind of treatment during the interview.
Oh I forgot to tell that when I told them that at my previous work I developed a tool a report which was approved and introduced at group level as it reduced the preparation time from 4-5 days to 3 hours , they were not impressed at all. What they asked me instead was: What will be my reaction if I was told that in this new company I cannot propose improvements and optimisation 'cause there is another person assigned for it?
Linda, you are young and you advice how to talk about job achievements of younger people, living in a modern world and their early experiences fit to modern businesses and what HR people are looking for. But what about people in their late 40 ties with small and oldfashionable job experience? For example mother was a housewife but have two universities and was living and educated in a comunist country. Later last 20 -25 year during the process of economucal, social and political changes she is still alive and wants to find a job in a new country or in her country but all her former experiences does not fit to the modern world. I will give you an example: she could say that she was very good in fast writing on "writing machine" and because of that more papers were writen faster. Do you know such machines? Nowadays no one cares about it, no one knows how to use it so her early experiences are rather "funny" so she can not talk about it. How to talk about achievements when you think you have no such, because you had no opportunity to develop yourself in a company? Those are difficult questions and the reason why so many people can not find a job - because modern recruiters (mostly young) have no idea about the past.
