“Can you tell me a little about yourself?”

How you can answer one of the most common interview questions. 


How do you answer the question, “Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?” If you’ve ever interviewed for a job, you’ve been asked this question, so how should you answer?


The bottom line is it’s not about what you say; it’s how you say it. Interviewers are looking for you to be straightforward and concise—ideally, your answer is less than three minutes. I highly recommend that you think through how you might answer this question and actually time yourself to ensure that it doesn’t last longer than three minutes. If you can do that, you’ll be able to nail this question.
