Interview questions: Tell me about yourself.

Tell me about yourself.
Focus on relevant skills and experience. Be on guard against the interviewer who gives you free rein. Don't spend too much time answering (1-2 minutes). Avoid details. Don't ramble. Touch on four areas: Born and Raised, Education/Military Background, Work Experience, Current Situation.

[That's it.  Now it goes without saying that how you sum your life should have something to do with why you're qualified to do the job they're interested interviewing you for.]
