Keep it Shot and Simple... Just tell him about your self, your qualification, relevant work experience etc. If you have any special skills, you can mention them. There is not much need to include your family, birthplace or hobbies. Keep it limited to 5-6 lines. That's it...
Well tell about urself and college details and ur extra activities that u have done ....pls also include ur goals and ambitions and do not mention ur family background here as it creates a bad impression on hr manager tell if asked about family background
This question is asked for, to check ur communication skill. Actually it is a well known answer for u. So, u should answer with some guts.... because if u answer this question boldly, u can able answer the technical question with the same guts......
So, answer this question which starts ur name, Ur highest qualification, previous degrees, school studies, native place, about ur families and currently ur working company, relavant experiences..... etc..
so, tell this answer with some strong guts...... all the best for ur interview.....
"I have a problem answering the TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF question. I want to answer this question professionally and without selling myself short. Can some one help?"
This question is one of the top 10 questions asked in just about any interview setting with or without this exact phrasing. So, this is NOT the time to be shy or timid - this you your time, make use of it. Some good advise in the earlier posts but I would not talk for more than 2 or 3 minutes. Take a hard look at the job description you are applying/interviewing for, that will be your guide in preparing an objective answer. Make sure you use the buzz words and phrases used in the job description or from the interviewer itself. Quickly cover your experiences going form most recent to oldest. Do NOT linger or get caught up with any particular position or company in the past, the ideas is to get through all pertinent experiences and qualifications within the 2-3 minutes. ALWAYS end with a "is there anything in particular that you want me to elaborate on..."

Most of the things that you tell about yourself are common stuffs that everyone tells. The differentiating factor is tell about your strengths and weakness. Your strenghts should reflect team work , aptitude etc and your weakness should not look fabricated ( 100% strength and 1% weakness ) , weakness can be like " i take up more work at times than i can do " , this though a weakness gives one positive meaning also that you like to take up work.
welcome to the forum .. posting question is very easy
just select the category under which you are going to post the question and then select the sub categroy and then click on ask button .. enter the title and enter the content below the message and then click on submit new thread button...
start with ur name. Then ur highest degree. about ur strengths, aim, objectives, likings and dislikings, ur hobbies etc. but be very careful while telling all these. u may get cross questions also. in business world family won't be considered as strength. so don't mention it as ur strength. be careful about ur hobbies. try to be honest and bold. u can include ur skills also if u have any.

The most often asked question in interviews. You need to have a short statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit it to work-related items unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you have done and jobs you have held that relate to the position you are interviewing for. Start with the item farthest back and work up to the present.
if some one ask about ur self... than its totaly mean ...// what u can do 4 thier company..? ..// tell him ur abilities ur positive & negative things if require .. y they hire u ...?
each topic should be to the point....////

Never been asked cross questions when you give response to this question. Just they want to know brief about your experience (technical, any project management skills, onshore\offsite experience, resource management etc). I am from US and the only weirdest people to ask weirdest questions are idiot desis who try to impress their managers. So if its desi who interviews you I am sure you are out of luck. But if its american who interviews you then your chances of getting a job is 95% easier.
Applying for a job can be a stressful and frustrating experience, especially for someone who has never done it before. Considering that you are competing for the position with a at least a dozen other applicants, it is imperative that you thoroughly prepare for the job interview, in order to stand a good chance of getting hired. That's where GeekInterview can help.
