Question 1 of 30

Tell me about yourself.

This question serves several purposes. It aims to get you to relax while speaking about a subject you are an expert on - yourself. It allows you to deliver your elevator pitch, explaining in a brief bio how your professional journey led you to their doors. It also serves as a reference point for when you are answering your questions most sincerely, as opposed to giving an interview performance and responding according to what you assume they are looking to hear. So, answer this and all the following questions as sincerely as possible. Or, as BlackRock advises, "Be yourself. Be valued for it."
