A detailed answer and analysis of a tough interview question from Matt & Nan DeLuca, authors of the best selling "Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions" and "More Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions"

Tell us about yourself.

First be prepared with a thumbnail sketch that you have rehearsed before your meeting.  Your answer should be no more than one minute long and include a description of where you have been recently as well as what you would like to do next. "I am an accounting professional with four years corporate experience who would now like to move over onto the public accounting side," is a brief example.  You might add at the end "Since your firm is highly regarded, I was very interested in learning more about the opportunities here."

Second, after you made you brief comment, either be quiet or close with, "Is there anything you would like me to add." Or, "Is that what you were hoping I would provide?" 

Third, listen carefully to the feedback to see if your answer was not sufficient, so that you might learn what specifically the interviewer would like you to add.
