    How to Answer the 'Tell Me About Yourself'

    Things to remember:

    The language must be simple. Avoid using any technical jargon. Assume that the interviewer has no idea about your line of work (unless, of course, you know they have)
    Follow an order, either chronological or anti-chronological. You can either start with what you do currently, going back to your education, early life etc. Or the other way around. Leave your hobbies and interests and other extra-curricular involvements for the end.
    If there is something relevant for the position, make sure you mention it at the end.
    Keep it like an elevator pitch. Hopefully under 30-45 seconds.
    Don't all-out market or pitch yourself.
    Try not to use adjectives - both positive or negative. Make it factual rather than a commentary. For example, "I am a highly motivated person", "I am very lazy", both are not appropriate for the question.
    Similarly, try not to go into specifics, unless asked. Remember, you have a precious few seconds.

    Talk about your relevant skills and background while using "my" more than "I". For example, you can say "My skills are a solid match for the position."
    Todd can teach you a lot about how to get a job and get more out of your career.
