HR ROUND

Tell me About Yourself?

This is a Typical First Question. Though it might look simple, many candidates don`t know whether to recap their entire life story, or get to the point about why you are fit for the job. Important is to stick to the present tense: the recruiter has already read your CV, and would not be so interested in your primary school etc. So limit your youth to the minimum and concentrate on your recent academic achievements and ambitions. If applicable, you can combine your past (youth) and current experiences
