Job Interview Question And Answer: What Do You Like About Yourself?

Posted October 13, 2011, by Elissa Collier

No, this is not the same as ‘What are your strengths?’. Talking about your strengths means focusing on professional skills, whereas this question becomes a little more personal. 

Focus on your values and morals, cultural fit and personal traits relevant for the job. If you are going for a job as a nurse, show that you are compassionate. A journalist might be inquisitive and a judge might have a highly-tuned sense of social justice.

Don't go overboard or it will sound like you lack credibility. Once again, be honest while also showing how well you as a person are a perfect match for the role you are applying for.
