How to Define Yourself in an Interview

Imagine you’re sitting in an interview and the first question from your potential employer is: “How would you describe yourself?” For most people, this can be one of the most difficult questions to answer. This article will give you some tips and tricks to help you craft an effective response!

The key is to keep it positive. While it’s okay to mention your weaknesses, don’t focus on them too much. It’s also important to be honest with your answers. A dishonest answer can ruin the game for everyone else. The best way to describe yourself is by giving a short story that highlights a positive attribute about yourself. That will be more memorable and make you appear more credible. It’s also helpful to lay down some ground rules before starting the game. In most games, players will ask one question at a time going clockwise around the circle. However, in some fast-paced environments, the asking order may be relaxed completely resulting in a free-for-all of questioning and answering.
