Hey Arjun read the below it may help u
Why did you leave your last job?
Stay positive regardless of the circumstances. Never refer to a major
problem with management and never speak ill of supervisors, co-workers
or the organization. If you do, you will be the one looking bad. Keep
smiling and talk about leaving for a positive reason such as an
opportunity, a chance to do something special or other forward-looking

Tell me about yourself:
The most often asked question in interviews. You need to have a short
statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound
rehearsed. Limit it to work-related items unless instructed otherwise.
Talk about things you have done and jobs you have held that relate to
the position you are interviewing for. Start with the item farthest
back and work up to the present.
E.g. Specify where did u complete ur schooling from, college and u may also mention about ur family

There are no right or wrong answers in an interview as opposed to a IQ test. You just have to be yourself and be as honest as you can while yet sounding positive and optimistic and if I may also add, practical about your future. Try and project any mistakes in the past as stepping stones and learning milestones rather than deny you made the mistake at all! At the same time use polite words while describing your previous organization or your ex-boss even if s(he) was a slave driver. As for "tell me something about yourself"..well tell them what you would like them to know..your special qualities, strengths, what kind of opportunities excite you, why are you considering them etc, what qualities and comptencies that you have seem to make a good fit..your other interests etc..but avoid the temptation to parrot your CV ( which is what most people do and believe me ..i hve done hundreds of interviews and its damn boring and irritating!)
Again remember..there is no right have to let the situation guide you. Good Luck!

I think 08.shivani <link updated to site home> has given some wise advice. Certainly when I interview candidates I do not look kindly upon someone who only has bad things to say about their former boss or their company - even if the comments are true.
Instead, talk about all the great experiences you had, interesting projects you worked on etc. Then suggest you are now 'looking for a fresh challenge' and move on to talk about all the great things you like about the job you have applied for.

Q: - Why you are leaving the current job?

Possible Answer: - I am looking out for opportunities bigger and better then what my current roles and responsibilities are, as i believe that i am prepared for the next level of responsibilities. Also, i had a word with my current management team reagarding the possibility of me playing a bigger role with my current employer, and they told me that they are bound by the process and it will take some "x" amount of time for them to allow me to go to the next level, hence i decided to try my skills with other employers.

Q: - Tell me something about yourself? <The question is generally asked at the start of the interview and aim is to give you a chance to lead the interview. Take a pause before you start answering, sound convincing, smile, talk slowly and ensure that the eye contact is maintained at all times>

Possible Answer: - Sir/Madam, My name is "xyz", i belong to "ABC" place in "district/state". I have done my graduation in "PQR" and was able to secure x% marks. I have a total of "D" yrs of exp in the domain. I have done "1,2,3.. " certifications. My work exp includes <talk about 2-3 good projects that you have done>. I have knowledge about <1,2,3..> tools in the domain. My hobbies are 1,2,3...

Hope this helps..

Hi Arjun
Before you have gone for the interview you would have reviewed the key requirements of the job and identified the key skills the company is seeking. Thus, when asked 'tell me about yourself' this is your opportunity to sell yourself.
Don't talk about your love of cricket or the fact that you enjoy socialising - all of this may be interesting but does not really promote any of your skills or experience. Rather, reflect back specific instances from your previous work or college experience that relates to the job you have applied for.
E.g. If the job requires you to have led teams then discuss how you were captain of your cricket team at Uni and enjoyed leading the team and had to make tough decisions on who to select for the team and who to drop.
E.g. If the job requires you to have proven analytical skills discuss how you enjoy playing chess or soduku since you enjoy the analytical thinking needed to do both.
Hope that helps
