00:03Can you start off and tell me about yourself.
00:07Oh, yes.
00:09Hello.
00:10Thank you.
00:11I'm very nervous.
00:14I do apologize.
00:15Well, my name is James, and I'm a hard worker.
00:18I'm a…
00:20I'm a really good team worker, and I really would like this job!
00:25So, that was a weak answer to the interview question, TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF, and it is
00:31typical, a typical answer of someone who has either never been to an interview before,
00:37or they don't have much work experience.
00:39Now, James, in that short video at the beginning was very nervous and he gave no substance
00:44to his response.
00:45But it wasn't his fault.
00:47He just did not know what to say.
00:49So, if you were a fresh graduate or someone with no work experience and you're worried
00:54about answering the interview question, tell me about yourself, please don't worry.
00:58I am here to help you.
01:01To help you pass your interview, and more importantly, answer that question, tell me
01:05about yourself, this is what I will cover during the tutorial.
01:08I will tell you what to include in your answer to the interview question, tell me about yourself
01:14if you are a fresh graduate or someone with no previous interview experience or work experience.
01:23Number two, I will then give you a top scoring example script and answer to that question,
01:30tell me about yourself.
01:31And all you have to do is pause the video, write it down, and use it to structure your
01:36own response.
01:37And then number three, I will give you my TOP 6 WORDS to use in your job interview if
01:43you are a fresh graduate or someone with no previous work experience.
01:48So, lots of reasons why you should stay tuned.
01:51Just quickly, if you enjoy my presentations, please just give the video a LIKE.
01:55Thank you very much.
01:56That tells me you find these tutorials useful.
02:00Okay.
02:01The Tell Me About Yourself interview question…
02:03This is going to be the first question you must answer during your interview.
02:07It is important you give a confident and positive response because that enables you to build
02:14a good connection with the interviewer.
02:16It helps to build a positive rapport.
02:20You know, this question is going to come up right at the very start, so I think it makes
02:24sense to practice your answer.
02:26Now, as a fresh graduate, you have little or no previous work experience.
02:31Therefore, your answer has to include four key things.
02:37What are the four things you should include in your answer to that question, tell me about
02:41yourself?
02:42Let me start working through those and I will then give you that scripted answer.
02:45So, number one, when you answer the question, tell me about yourself, thank the interviewer
02:51for being given the opportunity to be interviewed for a position with their company.
02:56This is a simple thing to do right at the very start of your answer, but it demonstrates
03:01really good manners, and the hiring manager will appreciate good manners.
03:06Number two, in your answer, talk about how your studies, your academic studies have prepared
03:12you for work life and how being a blank canvas means you can quickly become the perfect employee.
03:21What I mean by a blank canvas is that you don't have any preconceived ideas about the
03:27workplace.
03:28That means they get to train you up to be the perfect, high-performing employee.
03:34Number three, in your answer to the question, tell me about yourself…
03:38tell the interviewer the 4 WORDS that best describe you.
03:42Now, I will tell you which four words to use when I give you that scripted answer in a
03:47second.
03:48And then number four, finish off your answer and tell the interviewer that you plan to
03:53build a long term career with their company and ultimately become a truly high-performing
03:58member of their team.
04:00Because it takes a lot of time, effort, and resources to recruit the right person for
04:06a job.
04:07So, if you tell them that you genuinely plan to build a long term career with them, and
04:11you are a blank canvas who they get to train up in the role, they are more likely to take
04:16you on in the position.
04:17So, let me now give you that example of a brilliant answer to that interview question,
04:22tell me about yourself, that's for fresh graduates and those people who have limited, minimal
04:28experience, and I will then give you the script to write down.
04:32So, here's the answer.
04:34Hello, Mark, welcome to the interview.
04:38My name is Jenny and I will be interviewing you for this position today.
04:42Why don't you start off and tell me about yourself?
04:45My name is Mark and thank you for giving me the opportunity to be interviewed for this
04:49position with your company today.
04:52I recently graduated with a degree in business studies from the University of Cambridge.
04:57During my studies, I learned the importance of being disciplined, ensuring my work was
05:01to a high standard, and supporting my fellow students to help them achieve their goals.
05:06I would describe myself as a positive, enthusiastic, determined and resilient person who will always
05:12take ownership of difficult challenges whenever they occur.
05:15I am effectively a blank canvas with no preconceived ideas about the workplace, which means you
05:21can train me up to be a high-performing member of your team.
05:24If I am successful, I plan to build a long term career here.
05:28I want to become a reliable and trustworthy employee who always adds value to the business
05:33and supports it in its daily operations.
05:36Thank you for your answer, Mark.
05:39So, I am sure you will agree that was a better answer, a more confident response that Mark
05:44gave than the first answer from James to that question, tell me about yourself.
05:49In his response, he was confident.
05:52He mentioned those four words that best describe him.
05:55He explained how his studies, his academic studies, had prepared him for work life.
06:01And he also mentioned that he planned to build a long term career with their company and
06:06become a high-performing member of their team.
06:08It was a great answer, and it would allow him to build a connection, a positive connection
06:14with the hiring manager.
06:16Now, in a second, I'm going to give you that exact script so you can pause the video.
06:20Once it's up on the screen, write it down and use it to structure your own answer.
06:24And I will then give you those six brilliant, powerful words to use during the rest of your
06:29interview.
06:30Let me now give you that script.
06:32Tell me about yourself.
06:33Here we go.
06:34My name is Mark, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to be interviewed for this
06:38position with your company today.
06:40I recently graduated with a degree in business studies from the University of Cambridge.
06:46During my studies, I learned the importance of being disciplined, ensuring my work was
06:51to a high standard, and supporting my fellow students to help them achieve their goals.
06:57I would describe myself as a positive, enthusiastic, determined, and resilient person who will
07:03always take ownership of difficult challenges whenever they occur.
07:07I am effectively a blank canvas with no preconceived ideas about the workplace, which means you
07:12can train me up to be a high-performing member of your team.
07:16Now, if I am successful, I plan to build a long term career here and become a reliable
07:21and trustworthy employee who always adds value to the business and supports it in its daily
07:27operations.
07:28That's a great answer!
07:30A really good answer!
07:31And all you have to do is change the name, your degree or academic qualifications, and
07:36the educational establishment from which you attended.
07:40Let me now give you 6 GREAT WORDS to use in an interview if you are a fresh graduate or
07:45someone with no previous work experience.
07:48Take note of these words.
07:49Learn them, understand them, and use them in your job interview.
07:53Here's our 6 best words for your job interview.
07:56The first one is to say that you are a FLEXIBLE person.
08:00Now, if you are flexible, you are willing to always do tasks that are outside of your
08:05job description and also work extra hours if needed.
08:09This quality is highly appealing to all hiring managers.
08:13If you are flexible and adaptable, they will be attracted to that.
08:17The second word for your job interview is GOALS.
08:21So, during the interview, tell the hiring manager you always set yourself goals to achieve
08:25because employees that set themselves goals are more valuable to a business.
08:30And if you are a goal setter, it shows the interviewer that you are someone who is organized
08:36and you prioritize your work.
08:39The third one, which is a common word to use during an interview, is TEAMWORK.
08:43But, if you are a good team worker, you can collaborate with anyone and you always put
08:48the needs of your team first.
08:50The next word to use in your interview…
08:53this is one of my favorite words, and that's DISCIPLINED.
08:56People who are disciplined are organized and they never miss a deadline, which is obviously
09:01really important if you're going to work for any organization.
09:05This is another one.
09:06The fifth word is TRUSTWORTHY.
09:07Now, trustworthy employees are a hiring managers dream.
09:11They can be left alone to get on with their work and represent the company positively
09:15in everything they do.
09:16And the final word is FRUGAL.
09:19Not many people know what this means, but if you are frugal, you don't waste company
09:23supplies or resources.
09:25You are respectful of supplies and resources.
09:27You take care of them and are not wasteful of them, which enables the company profits
09:32to increase.
09:33So, those are those six words to use in your job interview.
