How To Introduce Yourself In an Interview

First impressions always play a significant role in how an employer perceives you as a candidate. What you say during the 1st phase of the interview can make a difference in the outcomeโ€”in a good way or in a bad way.

Generally, Introduction is the very first thing that happens in a job interview.

You know, the first impression is the last impression. And you never get a second chance to make a first impression. So you must design your self-introduction in such a way so that it can make a good impression on the interviewer. 

Now letโ€™s know how you can create a good introduction for a job interview.  Interviewers may ask you for a self-introduction in many ways, but generally, they ask you through โ€œTell me about yourselfโ€. You do not need to come back across as awkward and lacking in social skills. Rather, you will need to point out that you just have the expertise and communication skills to be a quality to the company if hired.

Information In a Self-Introduction

There are four categories of information that you can use to introduce yourself.โ€

Background and Interestย 

  • Where are you from and how has it had an impact on who you are?
  • What are your hobbies and interests?  Why do you enjoy these things?
  • What is exciting about your academic career? Focus on the last three years.

Values and Beliefsย 

  • What character traits do your friends, family, and colleagues count on you for? 
  • What are the top three things you value most? Why?
  • What core beliefs do you live by? Why are these things important to you?

Passions, Dreams, and Aspirations

  • What is the biggest dream you have for yourself? Why?
  • What are you currently doing to achieve your dream?
  • What are your passions and aspirations?

Skills and Achievements

  • What achievements are you most proud of?
  • How and when did they happen?
  • What do people count on you for most?
  • What skills and strengths do you bring to the table when working on teams
  • What type of work do you do now?

Points To Introduce Yourself in a Job Interview:

Mind the context.

Itโ€™s a bit of a no-brainer. The context is your job interview, and introducing yourself means giving the best answer to the โ€œtell me about yourselfโ€ question.

Do your research.

To introduce yourself in the best possible way, find out as much as you can about the company youโ€™re applying to. Make sure youโ€™re a cultural fit. And learn how to answer them. What are you passionate about?

Control your body language.

Body language communicates much more than you think. When you introduce yourself to the recruiter:

  • Look them in the eye.
  • Make sure your handshake is firm but natural to signal trust.
  • Speak with confidence.
  • Do not fidget, roll up your eyes, or cross your arms.

Prepare your answer.

Come in prepared to deliver the best interview introduction. Thatโ€™s it. Rehearse what you want to say to minimize the chances of being taken by surprise.

And remember: Itโ€™s not how you start. Itโ€™s how you finish.

For E.g 3

My name is XXX and I am from Chennai. I am currently studying Finance and Economics at Hong Kong University. I was raised in Bengaluru and when I was 18 I moved to Hong Kong to study. Last year I went to London to join the school's exchange program. During my exchange I went backpacking with other backpackers from all over the world to other countries across Europe. It was a fun experience. I think I have been fortunate enough to be able to live in different parts of the world and thus be able to broaden my horizon.

I have a strong interest in the banking and financial services industry. The reason is I'd like to leverage my detail-oriented mind and apply the skills and knowledge that I have attained throughout my degree courses. I see myself as a people-oriented and over-achiever. I demonstrated this through working in various group projects with different types of people in which I had been able to perform well.

I would like to be part of your company to further develop myself in the banking field and to use my capabilities to serve both your company and your clients.
