what if somebody actually does not have a role model and take bits from many people? or why should one retell the cv. tell me about yourself is a chance to tell things that you want to tell but do not mention in the CV and the recruiter is not likely to ask. its always the first question and a great chance to show your confidence and make the interview interesting. there are no wright and wrong answers. just be confident, cheerful and well prepared about the company.
Well..this has been the longest dicussed, debated subject in the world. 'How to face Job interview?'...and it keeps changing from time to time. This article looks to me, obsoltete. In today's competitive world, only 1 thing matters to clear an interview - 'Subject Expertise'. If you are good at work and have demonstrated praisworthy stuff in the past, you would automatically be IN, provided you dont reject the offer. And all those communication skills, ethics, values, attitude and stuff take the backrunner. If you aren't good at your subject, no matter what personality you hold, you invariable will be shown the door. This is reality.
May be this article might be useful to freshers hunting for their 1st job..not for the experieced community.

the packaging makes a impression but it is the stuff quality that really matters! i think it depends on the job profile. what you say is more appropriate for technical jobs. but for example take a job like teaching kids,even if you are a wikipedia of your subject it does not neccesarily means you would be a great teacher. when your job involves more of working with humans soft skill really matter.
Although the tips for job interviews are eternal, anticipation of these questions is out of place now-a-days. Sincere answer and real reasons will fit the right candidate in the right place.
Having read the CV, interviewers can measure a candidate about his capabality. If a candidate has changed job 3-4 times during 5 years, the negativity is not in company.. Interviewer knows it. Give real reasons such as timimg, salary not in time, better prospects for reason for leaving job. Your failure in college or school exam has no relevance in the interview. Be sincere.. dont overestimate and underestimate yourself. Interviewers like me, do fathom the candidate by his/her way of walking and so far we were right in judging him/her.

Couldn't understand at all?? Do you write something just for sake of it or you really want to say something?
