UTT is an Agency of the
ing in the community --- you need to be ready to hear
it and answer it. At all times.
Now, before I share a list of 10 memorable answers,
consider the two essential elements behind the answers:
The medium is the message. The interviewer cares less
about your answer to this question and more about the
confidence, enthusiasm and passion with which you
The speed of the response is the response. The biggest
mistake you could make is pausing, stalling or fumbling
at the onset of your answer, thus demonstrating a lack
of self-awareness and self-esteem.
Next time you re faced with the dreaded, "Tell me
about yourself..." question, try these:
• "I can summarize who I am in three words." Grabs
their attention immediately. Demonstrates your ability
to be concise, creative and compelling.
• "The quotation I live my life by is..." Proves that
personal development is an essential part of your
growth plan. Also shows your ability to motivate
• "My personal philosophy is..." Companies hire athletes
-- not shortstops. This line indicates your position
as a thinker, not just an employee.
• "People who know me best say that I m..." This
response offers insight into your own level of self-
• "Well, I googled myself this morning, and here s
what I found..." Tech-savvy, fun, cool people would
say this. Unexpected and memorable.
• "My passion is..." People don t care what you do --

about is who you are. Plus, passion unearths enthu-
• "When I was seven years old, I always wanted to
be..." An answer like this shows that you ve been
preparing for this job your whole life, not just the
• "If Hollywood made a move about my life, it would
be called..." Engaging, interesting and entertaining.
• "Can I show you, instead of tell you?" Then, pull
something out of your pocket that represents who
you are. Who could resist this answer? Who could
forget this answer?
• "The compliment people give me most frequently
is..." Almost like a testimonial, this response also
indicates self-awareness and openness to feedback.
Keep in mind that these examples are just the opener.
The secret is thinking how you will follow up each answer
with relevant, interesting and concise explanations that
make the already bored interviewer look up from his stale
coffee and think, "Wow! That s the best answer I ve heard
Ultimately it s about answering quickly, it s about speak-
ing creatively and it s about breaking people s patterns.
The medium is the message. The interviewer cares less about your answer to this question
and more about the confidence, enthusiasm and passion with which you answer it.
