Introduce yourself - Software Engineer
The first question I faced in interviews bothered my lot - "Tell me something about yourself ?".
Many times when I am taking interview I asked the same question but answers bit awkward and some times it seems people don't know themselves. Some people start explaining about projects, some about their company, some emphasize a lot on work experience, and some even tell about personal life.
I prepared my introduction last year and I really got success with this introduction -
"Hi!!! I am <Name>
I completed my graduation in Computer Science in year <> and I have interests in Travelling, Blogging, Psychology, and active lifestyle. I ran a personal blog for more than 5 years, and I published white papers, and presented technology architecture in companies I have worked.
I have coached and trained my colleagues & friends over technologies, methodologies, latest trends, and work-life balance. I am active on most social media sites and I have people from every background in my network. "
Tell the interviewer you have a good experience, you are ready for the challenge, you can work in any adverse situations, and you have diversified skills. IT work is about having the fundamental understanding and zeal to solve problems - if you have that you are going to successful.
