“Why should we hire you?”
“Tell me something about yourself.”
“Why do you want this job?”
There are two ways to ace a job interview – either memorize all the politically correct answers to these common questions or just be yourself & play your strengths. This video talks about the latter. (albeit in a slightly ‘filmy’ way)
What most people do is try very hard and forsee or overestimate things in an interview and hence end up losing their personality. In most interviews, the interviewer focuses on if you’ll be compatible with the work environment and if you excel the ‘common sense’.
Moral of the story: Don’t try too hard. Just be yourself.
