it's the most feared question during any job interview: can you tell me about yourself? 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 answer it. 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.
"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 yourself.
"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-awareness.
"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 – people care who you are. and what you're passionate about is who you are. plus, passion unearths enthusiasm.
"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 night before.
"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 all day!"
i understand your fear with such answers. responses like these are risky, unexpected and unorthodox. and that's exactly why they work. when people ask you to tell them about yourself, make them glad they asked.

Hello, my professors.It's a fine day today,and i'm very pleased to meet you here.First of all,i'd like to introduce myself to you.My name is ,my hometown is ***,which is a really beautiful city.Even when i was a young boy,i was very interested in biology science.Every one may have a dream,and i still remember that my dream is to be a biology scientist (just like ZHU KE ZHEN).I liked to make wonders just like,where are we from?Where are we going in the universe?And then i would find the answers in book by myself.Still today i think that interest is the best teacher in one's whole life (and knowledge comes from practice).
Second, i will introduce my major in the university.My major is Biological Engineering in *** University.It has a great relationship with biology scince.Their relationship can be shown with an example: Just like a river,biology science,which often finds new discoveries and theories, is at the head of the river.And my major,which lays more stress on practical use, seems to be at the end of it.When both of them interact cnwell enough,the discovries and theories in biology science can be soon turned into products in all of the modern industry.
Four years' university education gives me a lot of things to learn,a lot of chances to try,and a lot of practices to improve myself.It teaches me not only what to study and how to think,but also to see the importance of practical ability (such as doing expriment as much as possible). In the university life,i have made many good friends.They help me improve my study and research ability, do ererything just like a man,and often give me good example to follow.

The first thing to realize is that the question, “Tell me about yourself,” provides you with a great chance to promote your strong points. This is particularly important when applying for a job that is different from what you have done in the past. You need to show the interviewer that your previous job provide you with skills that can be used in the new job.
Here are some of the skills that you might want to mention. 你可以介绍自己是： Problem solver 解决问题能手 Creative thinker 充满创意 Accurate 小心谨慎 People person 与人相处融洽 Team player 合群 Organized 组织力高
