Learn the best way to answer "tell me about yourself" job interview question from a PwC Consulting Manager and easily impress the hiring manager.
You will learn how to prepare, pass, and land interviews with multinational companies.
Tell Me About Yourself is one of the most critical questions you will be asked in your interview. In fact, I'll go ahead and say that it's perhaps THE most important question. I'll also say that it's the only one that can allow you to leave a long lasting impression with the hiring managers. And, it's incredibly easy to pull it off.
You need a structure in your pitch. A structure that will allow you to present your background effectively. In this video, I talk in great details as to how you should answer this job interview question.
It's all about having a structure, knowing what to say, knowing what not to say and presenting your background smoothly while making sure mentioning important elements in your background which is also what the hiring managers are looking for. In your 2 minute pitch, you need to make sure you present your background in a way that they clearly get the idea that you are THE candidate they want to hire.
Watch the video until the end to gain a full understanding on the topic."

Deniz Sasal hello if you can answer my question I would appreciate that my question is tomorrow I have interview and my English is not 100% perfect I can speak but I have accent and then if the hiring manager asked me some different question or used a little hard word that I might don’t get it right away so if I asked him to repeat that word again do you think is that ok or no? Because sometime it’s a little difficult for me to understand a word and I’m so so nervous so please answer my question and wish me luck please and thank you.

After graduated, it was hard to build ‚story’ for job search, especially when you’re not brilliant enough with good notes in your class.. thanks to this guy, I built my profile for interview my 1st job by taking his advices and tips.. it’s Brilliant and really really helpful.. thank you, Deniz! I got my first job with salary more than I expected.. you’re a TOP Guru :) Keep up this good thing, you are helping others ;)
Hello Deniz, Thank you first of all!!! Such valuable content -- I feel so ready for my interviews now. I'm not seeing the link to download the powerpoint slides. Did I miss it? I'd like to make slides for an interview I have tomorrow. Thank you!!
Dear Deniz：I would like to thank you for your great advice. I presented a printed prensentation of myself and the interviewer said this is the first time he had been provided with a presentation for interview；）nice shot isn”t it？By the way guys，I was having a technical interview and all my capabilities which I did not have the chance to speak for was well presented in the presentation. I think I fully presented myself with this method. Deniz you are awsome！！
TSC Kolkata ( unitech) gave me 6 to 7 second to introduce. she (interviewer) didn't look C.V properly (so what is worth to fill up registration form) . They only show interest who is your reference. why partiality ??? first question who is your reference?
What advice would you give to a person who is a specialist, moved to a foreign country, started to learn a language of this country but would like to work using English at work (not to wait with job 3 years). Is it reasonable to work as a cleaner and lost 3 years (a hole in cv)? What will future company think if she/he will write in cv that worked on a few level lower position? Will they think that he was not enough good that is why he could not find appropriate job? What if particular job possition is caused becuse of private or family issues? Is it good to talk about those private reasons? For example husband is not fine with a job where wife will be forced to travel abroad for business reasons but a job possition is well tailored to her and she would love this job? Should she say that husband is not ok with it?
Very useful video- thanks for posting.
I'd like to make a suggestion for a future video: it's "How To Deal With Awkward Situations And Questions At Interviews, Which Are Entirely The Fault Of Rude/Incompetent/Unprofessional/Badly Prepared Interviewers". Here are a few of the most common bad situations I've encountered at job interviews. I will omit the names of the companies to protect the guilty parties (there are some very big names):
1. Unprepared interviewers. "Sorry mate, I haven't had time to read your CV. Just give me a couple of minutes."
2. Interviewers who make the job sound awful. "I hope you have some outside interests, because this job is mind-numbingly boring". And, "This is a very tough job. There may be some casualties along the way. It could be six months out of your life".
3. Interviewers who don't turn up. "Sorry mate, John Smith couldn't make it, and I've been asked to stand in." Usually followed by (1).
4. Interviewers who turn up late. "Sorry mate, I was on the phone" is the most common excuse.
5. There is more to the job than was stated in the original job advert. "By the way, would you mind doing x, y and z as well?"
6. The job is nothing like the job description. They have basically lied through their teeth.
7. The job location is different to the job description. Another lie. "We haven't got enough space for you in the office, so would you mind working from home?"
8. The interviewer promises, with hand on heart, to inform you of the outcome of the interview. You never hear from him again.
9. The interview is cancelled at very short notice. I was once on the bus on the way to an interview when my phone rang with the bad news.
10. The interviewer is unbelievably rude/abrupt/arrogant/condescending. You'd rather work for Genghis Khan.
These are all real, genuine situations that I have encountered at job interviews. And you wouldn't believe how often these things happen! I could probably write a book about my bad experiences at interviews.
When stuff like this does happen, it's as if the interview is rendered meaningless- you are check-mated after the first move. All your careful preparation is for nothing. You leave the interview fuming, feeling cheated. You never had a fair chance.
So Deniz, if you have any advice on how to get out of these difficult situations, it would be most welcome.
Dear Deniz Sasal,
I can't thank you enough for your videos. I followed a lot of your tips AND so I got a job with PwC in Berlin. So I am very happy and looking forward to meet you throw PwC one day! :) Job starts 1st September.
My name's Tanner. By age 20 I ran three separate businesses; swam the channel; won gold in four bodybuilding competitions; made my first billion and solved world hunger.
"Okay. Do you have any questions?"
Just one. Am I good enough to stack shelves?
Lots of great advice. However, I personally would never pull out a short power point presentation, even if it's neatly laid out and laminated, as I feel it's best to have all this information already prepared in your head. It's better for me to come across natural and less informational if I can show the interviewer my abilities to be casual, yet articulate in this setting. Also the powerpoint if not requested by the interviewer, may pull focus away from myself. But thank you for the good advice otherwise!
I am already working for a multi-national company, but trying to be promoted..I think it’s a fantastic idea to make a 2-3 slide ppt, which helps the hiring managers to visualize the outcomes of my work. It also shows that I made some effort to prepare, and even if they don’t initially think that “tell me about yourself” question should be asked to check the presentation skills, they will be forced in a positive to take them into account ☺️
Thanks, Deniz that was a nice insight into presenting and talking about oneself, the only problem I have with the slide idea is that nowadays most interviews are now done over the phone or skype, so how do you advice addressing this problem?
Great advice, really, the first point. The 2nd one about the presentation, I don't know, might not work. I've never seen interviewers who would be willing to look at that.
One thing I just wanted to bring your attention to is that you use a lot of fillers ( um,ah, er) while speaking. Otherwise, your content is bang on!
