When an interviewer asks questions about you, they are trying to determine whether you’ll be a good fit for the company. Is your personality a match for the company culture? Are your goals and expectations a match for what your role in the company will be if you're hired? How would you fit in with the current team?

The best way to answer interview questions about yourself is to be honest. You are who you are.

Trying to present yourself as someone you're not may help you get a job offer, but it might not be the best idea in the long run. You need to consider whether the job would work out long-term if it's not a match for your personality and work style or for what you're seeking in your next position and your next employer.

Here are common interview questions you'll be asked, sample answers, and tips for the best way to respond to interview questions about yourself.
