How you answer key questions at the beginning and end of an interview can be crucial to your success in the job search. I like to refer to these as interview bookends – and most people don’t know how to approach them.

“If there are two questions that give people the most heartburn during an interview – it’s the questions that I call the bookends, they are ‘tell me about yourself’ and ‘why should we hire you’. We all know they’re coming.” -Elissa Shuck, LYWL Ep. 44

In this episode, we’ll break down each question and get some insight into the hiring manager’s perspective. You’ll discover what to include in your responses (as well as what not to include) and how to present it all in a way that is authentic and compelling.
