"Tell me About Yourself" is the most commonly asked question during the job interview. When you come to the job interview you will always get this question. There are also many variations of this question - "Why should I hire you?" or "Why are you the best fit for this position?"

This is one of the best open ended questions to learn about the candidate. There are a lot of resources created on how to provide a standard expected answer – there are plenty of videos on the topic (script, format, what to say, what not to say) with tips and tricks. Main promise of the typical recommendation with the answer script is: customize the answer, memorize it and repeat it during the job interview. And You will get hired. And most likely you will get hired by just providing the standard expected answer.

Mr. Mikhailenko discusses that the reasons why by providing the standard expected answer you may not land the job of your dreams. Some of the most interesting ones are:

  • Would you be happy on the new job? Just the fact that you have earnings will make you happy, but would you find the dream job with this approach?
  • It is possible that you will get hired for the job you do not enjoy? That you will be back on the job market, searching for another position, very quickly?
  • Would you want to work for the company that expects just the prepared script? And only expects you to memorize the script to conform?

Vadim Mikhailenko, MBA also shares with you why you might have a lot more negotiating power and future employee of the company that you might think.
