    Here is my view.. Please add your comments

    This is the area where many candidates tend to misinterpret the question. While the interviewer is in fact asking you about yourself, they aren't interested in your overall life history. They also don’t want to sit there for 15 minutes while you give details of your life story. Always keep it a short narrative, ideally two minutes, of slight personal background but mostly your professional background. Explain your goals and their relation to the job you applied for. Discuss any achievements you have made, personally and professionally, but relative to the position. This is the opportunity to really sell yourself by providing your accomplishment, goals, etc.

    Thanks,
    Chandra
