Everybody knows that first impression is last impression. To get a job, your introduction must be Impactful. You know yourself the best, yet giving a good self-introduction in an interview is quite a task. If your introduction goes well, you feel confident, and the interviewers also get a good impression of you.
Ace the self-introduction in style
Who you are
Greet your interviewers and tell your name to start the formal introduction. It is always a good idea to prepare for this most expected question beforehand. Do not hesitate to include some informal, personal information, such as your hobbies, or what you do on weekends.
Where do you come from?
Mention the place you belong to, the location of your school, your college, and so on. Some people do not consider it worth mentioning, but it, surely, gives a lot about your background.
Give a brief account of your educational background such as your school, graduation, post-graduation and so on. Mention extra-curricular activities you have been a part of.
Do not list all the courses and certifications you have done. Just include what is relevant to the specific job profile.
Who you are (as a professional)?
It is always a good idea to identify some worth-mentioning professional traits before your interview.
Start with your current professional profile. You must present your previous work experience in a structured way.
Highlight your personal and professional strengths by mentioning some previous projects.
Note: Do not mention those work experiences in detail that are not relevant to the current profile. Just provide an outline of such experiences. The hiring manager will ask you more if he or she is interested. Excessive talking about your skills and talents might go against you.
