Question 1 of 30

Tell me about yourself.

This question presents you with the opportunity to put your best foot forward by showcasing to your interviewer that this is going to be a good interview for them, and that you are the candidate they are looking for. You are going to accomplish this by simply doing two things. Being yourself and coming prepared. Bring a notebook that contains the notes you've taken when researching their website and everything you've learned and discovered about the position, about Nordstrom, and their history and culture. Have a page dedicated to all the questions you plan to ask throughout the interview, and then some more for the end of the interview. Make sure your notebook has blank pages for taking notes. Bring your resume and cover letter. Be confident, relaxed, friendly, and be yourself.
