MN Headhunter - So Tell Me About Yourself (STOP! It's A Trick Question)

Check out the MN Headhunter blog on a regular basis - the blog offers very valuable information about interviews, resumes, etc for a job search. Subscribe to its RSS Feed or follow him on twitter.

The latest blog - shows how a job searcher should answer the question "Tell me about yourself" in an interview.

Most important information in the blog:

"I once had an interviewer start of with the ‘So tell me’ question. Knowing what I know, I kept it strictly professional. I said I graduated from XYZ University with a Bachelors of Science in Communications and started my career in Recruiting with a National Staffing Agency, I progressed through the ranks, then moved on to a better opportunity with ABC Corp. I have been with them 6 years and am now seeking a more challenging role as the Human Resources Manager for LMN Inc. See how I kept it purely about my career progression? This is the proper way to answer the question."
