Tell me about yourself – How to attend HR interview and Questions Answers Preparation

In an interview, every interviewer asks the first question Tell me something about Yourself? to the candidates. So every candidate knows how to proceed with the answer to that questions. This is a very important question for any kind of interview.

We are using EES Method for that question of telling me about yourself.

What is EES?

EES means




Candidates must have to explain their Education details, then previous experience, and then their required skills in a systematic manner.

For example

HR: Good Morning Mr. Mohan

Candidate: Good Morning Sir.

HR: You are applying for the Post of Junior Engineer in IT Dept.

Candidate: Yes sir.

HR: Ok. Mr. Mohan Tell me About Yourself?

Candidate: I have Completed my Engineering Graduation in Computer Science Department with 90%. I have got 15 months of experience in Vectra Infotech working as a Program developer. I am a hard worker, I am very honest and dedicated in my work.

(Note: Mr. Mohan Used the EES method in his interview. In the interview first He explained His Education details, Then he explained his past work experience. Then finally he told him personal skills.)

HR: OK Good.

How to avoid a poor answer to the question of Tell me about yourself?

-> Every Candidate should have read their Job description carefully. For example, Company requires a Program developer. You should not Explain your Other skills like hardware skills and networking skills while attending the interview. Because your answer is most relevant to the required position. This is the important thing for attending the interview.

->Another thing candidates should have prepared their answers before attending the interview using the EES method.

How to proceed with the best answer to the question to tell me about yourself?

For example, Someone applying for a Sales manager posting for an MNC company. He answered the question of Tell me about yourself:

->My name Ravi. I have completed MBA with 72% in 2012. I have more sales experience and handle the sales officers. I am able to collect the data s and submit the report and working under the pressure, towards targets and achieve sales targets without any loss.

->This kind of Answer may help to select the candidates for the Requirement. The candidate should have to attend the interview with confidence and without nervousness.
