    Interview... "tell us about yourself"

    I have my interview coming up on Friday and Ive gone through all of my possible questions but for some reason Im having trouble coming up with a thoughtful and enticing answer to the question "Tell us about yourself". Ok, not really a question but you get the point

    I want to sell myself but Ive never had to brag about myself and its really hard to do

    Just say:

    Well tell me what you are looking for and I'll tell you if I fit the bill.

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    Practice a 60-second commercial where you tell about yourself - I mean practice it becuase it feels different when you say it for the first time in front of an interview panel. Stand in front of a mirror and rehearse that baby (maddoc, get your head out of the gutter, the lotion comes later).

    use examples!!

    Don't just say that you're a team player, SHOW you're a team player.

    Choose three of the things that Ken mentioned and come up with a 15-sec story for each of them.
