Job interviewing 101

Tell me about yourself.  Every interview starts off this way--be ready to respond.  Ask a Manager gives some advice:

How do you answer "tell me about yourself" in a job interview?
"Tell me about yourself" in a job interview really means "give me an overview of who you are, professionally speaking." There's a reason this is asked at the very beginning of an interview -- it says "give me the broad background before we dive in to specifics."

You want to be ready with about a one-minute answer that summarizes where you're at in your career (generally with an emphasis on your most recent job), what you do, and what the strengths of your approach are.
