That oh-so-famous interview question? “Tell me about yourself”
Came across a crisp video about how to answer this well, instead of starting with where one was born and what the temperature was on that fateful day!
It’s called the SEAT principle. The interviewee must make sure to cover:
S for skills one brings to the table
E for experiences or educational qualifications
A for the key achievements so far
T for the type of person you are and what gets you going
Pretty simple stuff, but so well formulated! Even outside of formal interviews, it’s always good to have this framework at the back of our minds. It can be used in pretty much any context where one has to introduce themselves. Who knows, that conversation could end up being the opportunity of a lifetime!
