Do you promise to tell the whole truth, the entire truth and nothing but the truth?

Dear Andrew:
Every time I go into a job interview, I’m asked a very difficult question: “Can you please tell us about yourself?” I’m completely stumped as to how to approach this question. I don’t want to appear to be bragging about myself, but I also don’t want to downplay things I’ve accomplished in my career. I want to leave a solid impression about myself but am lost as to how to even begin my answer to this question! 

Help!
 

Why is it so hard to talk about ourselves? SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Is it because we believe it is rude to take credit for things? Is it because we are afraid that if we take ownership for our accomplishments that people won’t believe us or that others might think we are not being honest about our successes? Or is it that deep adherence to the value of modesty we are taught from an early age (Don’t brag! It’s not polite to take credit! It was a TEAM effort!)

Let’s break this down.

There is truth in each of us. 

At its core, the job search is about connecting our truth to the jobs we are applying for in order to convince an employer our truth is the best fit for the position. The truth that defines us as it relates to job seeking comes in many forms including:

Our education
Our career chronology
Our accomplishments
Our promotions and raises
Our titles
Our knowledge, skills and expertise
Our personalities

These truths are undeniable. 

We earned these truths through our hard work, our dedication to our craft and our years of experience. These are the truths we all have and are the truths that are critical in defining the value we bring to a new employer.

But throughout the process of job seeking, it is easy to lose focus on our truths. There is rejection. There is failure. There is the ‘thanks but no thanks’ form letter.

And in our attempt to figure out why (you usually never get a reason for the rejection) we start to make false assumptions and rationalizations.

My resume stinks.
My experience isn’t valuable (or a fit).
I’m too old.
I’m too  young.
I’m over-qualified or under-qualified.
I don’t know how to interview.
....And on and on and on.

For many job seekers I’ve met with, this ‘stinking thinking’ ends up creating a negative (and false) truth that separates them from the true undeniable value (and promise) they bring to the table. Before long, a complete watered down version of themselves is what they are displaying in their resumes, cover letters, interviews and general conversations they have about themselves. It leads to depressions, anxiety and a complete disconnect from the truth of who they are.

If you find yourself in this situation, start doing some homework that will help you get back on track. Primarily, sit down with a piece of paper and start writing out the things about your career OWN ITand your life that you know to be true: things you are extremely proud of, accomplishments you can take ownership of and successes that define your truth.

Develop stories that go along with these accomplishments. 
  • Why were you hired at your last job?
  • What were the essential things that got you promoted in the past or a raise?
  • What characteristics about your work personality helped you succeed?
  • ​What skills, expertise and technical knowledge do you have that makes you valuable? 
What was an incredibly proud achievement in your career? An assignment you were given where you knocked it out of the park? Why did your previous bosses trust you with responsibility? What made you a favorite of your clients? Why did your colleagues appreciate you?

Once you start doing this, you will start to see a pattern emerge. It’s a pattern that takes credit for your truth and reminds you of all of the value your truth possesses.

It’s a pattern that defines the common truths about who you are, your unique skills and knowledge, your personality and, most importantly, the truth about the success you’ve enjoyed throughout your career.

When you get back on track, start writing a brief, narrative ‘stump speech’ about yourself that includes the details of your truth. This will be the impactful response that you will give in one form or another to anyone who ever asks “Can you tell me something about yourself?” Get used to taking ownership of your truth and become comfortable delivering this speech.

Bottom Line: As a job seeker, it is easy to lose focus of our truths. It is critical that you become comfortable talking about yourself in ways you confidently take credit and ownership of the truths that define you.
