How to answer the “Tell me about yourself” question (Job Search Workshop Week)

This virtual workshop is for graduate students and postdocs

The “tell me about yourself” question is usually one of the first questions you will be asked in your next interview, and should be easy (given that you have been you for decades!), but many applicants find this to be a challenging question to answer. Whether it is just nerves at the start of the interview, or the challenge of trying to summarize so much information in 2 minutes, this question can feel hard. In this mini-workshop, we will highlight approaches you can take to answer this question confidently in a way that provides a solid foundation for the rest of your interview. This workshop will be recorded and made available if you are unable to participate in the virtual session.
