Discussion on: How To Answer The Dreaded "Tell Me About Yourself" Interview Question

I actually like this question because it allows me to speak about whatever I want and try to connect that to how I can be valuable for the company.

I love the "find your quirk" advice. I think that's my tactic, too, because when answering this question I usually talk about my background to mention my diverse coding experience and emphasize my adaptability and willingness to learn new stuff.

You could also use that question as an opportunity to speak about your values. People are usually impressed by that!

I agree! This question is so open ended and allows you to get ahead of any questions the interviewer may have.
