“Tell me about yourself.” 請介紹一下你自己，通常是你第一個會被問到的問題，也是整場面試最重要的問題，是你能夠主動出擊的關鍵點，如果回答得好，你甚至可以掌控整場面試的問答走向。
雖然你很優秀，但是跟公司對人才的需求是否能有共鳴呢？這就是我常提醒面試者回答的方向，可以透過 Simon Sinek 的Why – How – What – Why me 思考模式來系統化自己的回答，舉例來說，你有豐富的業務經驗，希望能應徵某公司的業務經理，你可以這樣說：
I know the company just launched a great product. At this point, you want to promote the product to a brand new market. As such, you need more people with the ability to develop new client relationships. (WHY)
My current company often assigned me to various countries to support sales activities. So I have strong adaptability. And I am good at opening a conversation with people I meet the first time. To develop new clients sometimes we need to approach huge amount of people multiple times. My compressive Excel skills allow me to set up a system recording/monitoring my approach and the status of follow-ups. (HOW)
Based on my understanding, I have the traits you are looking for. We can work together. (WHAT, WHY ME)
3. 參考例句- 常見的陷阱題，該如何巧妙回應？
What’s your biggest weakness?
I used to like to work on one project to its completion before starting on another, but I’ve learned to work on many projects at the same time, and I think it allows me to be more creative and effective in each one.
Who was the worst boss you worked with?
The most challenging boss I worked with was a man who provided very little feedback about my performance. I was able to improve communication by providing unsolicited weekly status reports on my projects. Eventually, he furnished some feedback and constructive criticism to these reports and I knew better where I stood.
What are your salary expectations?
I am open to discussing what you believe to be a fair salary for this position. And, based on my research, my knowledge of the industry, and my understanding of this geographic area, I would expect a salary in the general range of $X to $Y. Again, I am very open to discussing these numbers with you.
Do you have any questions for me?
a. Can you share more about the day-to-day responsibilities of this position? What’s a typical day like?
b. If I were hired for this role, what would you want me to achieve in my first month in the position?
