Question 1 “Tell me about yourself”

问题一:请简单介绍一下你自己

What is the Interviewer Asking About?

The interviewer is asking about your career story.

Your career story is the academic and professional path that led you to this interview. In other words:

  • What are the academic and career experiences that make you both interested in this position, AND a good fit for this position?
  • What they are not asking you about, is your life story: hobbies, family, general interests etc.

面试官真正想问的是什么?

面试官想要了解你的career story。

这个故事描述了你过去的学习或工作,以及到参加面试的整个经历。

  • 也就是说,你曾经什么样的学习或工作经历让你对这个工作感兴趣,并且能够胜任这个工作。
  • 面试官并不是在问你的生活,例如兴趣爱好,家庭等。

2 steps to follow when planning your answer

两步帮你准备答案

Think about which of your past experiences, whether academic or professional, best demonstrate your qualifications for the position:

  • For example: you could have taken a class in computer networking that really inspired and interested you
  • If you’re now applying to a related engineering job, mention that class as a key past event in your career development

思考最能证明你能胜任这个职位的学习或是工作经历:

  • 例如,你可能上过一门非常有趣的计算机网络课程。
  • 如果你正在申请一个engineering相关的工作,可以将这门课作为你过去职业发展中一个重要的经历。

Then, think about current positions or projects you’re completing that demonstrate you are reaching a professional level of competence:

  • Sticking with the engineering example: if you have a current internship in back end engineering, mention back-end projects at your internship in which you have a significant role
  • Successful completion of projects in a professional context proves that you are ready to be immediately productive at a future job

然后,思考你目前的工作或者即将完成的项目,从而证明你能达到专业水平。

  • 延用engineering的例子:如果你目前有一个后端工程师的实习,可以在回答问题时提起一个你在其中起到重要作用的后端项目。
  • 在专业领域成功完成项目证明了你能够在未来的工作中立即上手并做出成果。

Lastly, mention what you hope to achieve in the future given the opportunity to work at that company

  • Make sure you’ve done your research beforehand on the company and the position, so you can mention exactly what about the job matches your past and current experiences
  • For example: you may have done research revealing that the company allows engineers to work on small independent projects part of the week.
  • Mention your excitement about that benefit, and the initiative you hope to take by using that free time to develop your own features

最后,提出如果能够在这个公司工作,你希望在未来达到什么?

  • 面试前一定要提前对这个公司和职位做好调查,这样就能清晰且确切地向面试官说明这个职位与你曾经和现在的经历匹配。
  • 例如,你可能通过调查,了解到这个公司允许程序员每周抽出部分时间,独立完成一些小项目。
  • 那么,你就可以说,你对这点非常感兴趣,因为你可以利用这段时间自我提升。

Step 2 – choose whether your career story is a straight progression from your past experiences to this job OR if you are making a transition

第二步:确认你的career story是过去到现在工作的直接提升,还是你正在过渡。

Some people follow a very direct path from a certain major, to related internships, and finally to a related first job. If that is the case for you, then you can follow the “past, present, and future” structure directly. BUT if you made a transition between different majors in your undergraduate and masters, OR if you are pursuing a first job that is different from your major:

Then this questions is a great opportunity to explain WHY you are making that transition.

As you go through your Past Present and Future sections, give specific reasons for why you are transitioning. For example:

  • If you changed from a math undergraduate position to a masters in CS, and now you want to do full stack engineering. What inspired you to make that change?
  • What about full stack engineering is attractive to you? And how can you prove that you are dedicated to making that shift given what you have accomplished before applying to this job?

有些人从一而终,一开始就选择特定的专业,实习,最后目标明确地找第一份工作。这样的话,你就可以直接用“过去-现在-将来”的模式。但是如果你在本科或者研究生阶段转过专业,或者你目前在找的工作和专业不符,那么这个问题就是一个你解释为什么这样做的绝佳机会。

当你在讲述过去,现在及将来这些经历时,给出明确的理由,说明为什么你要选择跨行。

  • 例如,如果你本科是数学,研究生是CS,现在你希望做一个全栈工程师。那么,什么促使你做出这样的选择呢?
  • 全站工程师的工作哪些方面吸引着你?同时,你为了转行, 做过了哪些努力?

总结

  • 面试官问这个问题,是为了了解你的“career story”。
  • 如果你之前转专业或转行了,这对你来说也是一个很好的机会来解释你这么做的原因。
