Describe yourself in one word

HREdward KiledjianComment

Interviews can be fun or scary depending on how prepared you are. A new question many candidates are being asked is to described themselves in one word. Interviewers know that unless you prepared for this question, you will likely delay and stumble.

Before you go into that interview, take the time to conduct some honest introspection and ask yourself :

  • “Who am I?”  
  • “What makes me unique? What sets me apart?”
  • “What value do I bring to the company?”

When you feel you finally understand your service offer, start trying to find a word that best describes you. In my case, the word I would use is driven. I know it’s the right word because my background proves it and anyone that knows me will agree immediately.
