Be yourself, everyone else is taken up!

Employers want people, not just skills and “Tell me about yourself” is one of the most common questions they will ask.  Don’t pretend to be someone else, like the Janitor who is notorious for pretending to be a doctor at Sacred Heart. This is your time to shine so be professional, but allow your personality to come through as you tell them all about your skills and experience.  Focus on your strengths and avoid bringing up skills that aren’t required for the position.  If you don’t know how to answer a question, just say so and ask for clarification. Remember, there’s no need to pretend to be someone you’re not like Janitor.
