How to Answer
When an interviewer asks an open-ended question like this, it can be difficult to know where to begin...and end! This question haunts many individuals who may have accidentally gone a little too in-depth into their personal lives. It happens. Keep your reply light, and work relevant. Share how you became interested in this career path and what you enjoy about it. This question offers an excellent opportunity to describe yourself by discussing the strengths and qualities that you bring.

Academic Advisor
"Open ended questions are some of the hardest to answer in an interview. It's important to train yourself how to talk about yourself. It may sound a little silly, because you've been talking about yourself for years! In an interview, you should leave out the highly personal stuff. No need to talk about your new puppy or your favorite foods. Keep it professional and concise. Interviews typically last for about thirty minutes to an hour, so keep that in mind as you prepare. Sometimes practicing with a friend or timing your response can help. Focus on your interest or passion for the field, your education and accomplishments. Keep it relevant to the job at hand! Also consider the fact that there is plenty of time for you to talk about your skills and strengths during the interview, so you don't have to say it all in one gulp. "

"The interviewer wants to get to know you, but they are most interested in information that is relevant to this position. Sharing your educational background, your interest in the mental health field and a few hobbies is a great place to start. When talking about hobbies, think about the ones that could be relevant to the job. You'll be working a lot of people, so if you volunteer or serve on the PTA committee they might be good examples. You'll be working with a lot of different personalities, so talking about how much you love people and enjoy going out to concerts or other public places where you get to meet new people shows that you are outgoing and friendly. Try to keep this answer brief, but give the interviewer reason to want to know more about you. The way you talk about yourself is also important. Be enthusiastic and composed. Show that you are prepared."

What projects are you working on that relate to this new job? What initiatives have you taken to make improvements or motivate your team? This is also a good time to mention any future goals that are relevant to the position."
Veterinary Assistant
"Good news! There is no clear formula for the best way to answer this question. However, there are some topics that could be more beneficial to share than others. Talking about your entire work history isn't the best choice, but you could talk about a few highlights that led you to this career. It's also not great to divulge too much personal information. Think about the interviewer like they are a new friend. You don't want to share too much all at once because they could get overwhelmed. It's okay to talk about a few of your interests and where you're from, but use this time to your advantage. Talk about things that are relevant to this position, things that will give the interviewer more insight into your skills, abilities and your personality. "

Finally, share a couple of fun facts with the interviewer such as if you have any pets and any hobbies that you have. We recommend not discussing your age, children, or marital status when answering this question. Instead, stick with the basics that we have outlined above to ensure you create a positive impression with the interviewer."
