are often non-directive questions as the employer wants to see where you will go
with your answer. You should mention your relevant background, education,
experience, skills, and personal attributes. Always keep in mind the position
which you are applying to, and link the information to it. This is not the bulk
of the interview, so keep the answer relatively brief and to the point. The most
common opening question is "Tell me about yourself." Another
less common opening question is "What can I do for you today?"
This question "throws" many people as one's first reaction might be to
think "What do you mean? I'm here for an interview!" This could
be considered a type of stress question. Maintain your composure, and answer the
question as completely as you can.
