Tell Me About Yourself Workshop

The job search process is made up of a collection of places to tell the employer about your skills and experience. From the very first step, an application, to the first question at the interview – "So, tell me about yourself." -- your job search path offers many opportunities to explain why YOU are the best fit for the open position at that company.
