Tell me a little about yourself.
This is not an open question to go into every little detail about your life. You need to keep your answer to this open-ended question very professional. You will want to give a 1 to 2 minute summary of your professional life.
Describe a typical workday for you.

Your resume was stunning. Your cover letter caught the attention of the hiring manager and moved your application to the top of the pile. You have landed one of the most coveted things on the road to landing the perfect job.
You have an interview set up!
Hold On! Just because you have gotten an interview, does not mean that you work is over on the road to getting the job. This is the time when you will need to put forth the extra effort to keep your name above the rest of the applicants when it comes to the job.
Employers spend only about 6 seconds reading a resume. During those 6 seconds, it’s up to you to show them that you are dedicated to finding the right job at their company. A fantastic resume is your ticket to an interview. Avoid these common resume mistakes and you’ll be on your way to the job you’ve always wanted.
Misspelling. Read your resume many times, checking for spelling and grammatical errors. It’s a good idea to ask at least two people to read your resume over, as you will sometimes miss something if you read your resume too many times. A resume with misspellings seems sloppy and rushed. It reflects badly upon you and gives the employer little reason to trust you with difficult tasks.
As you begin to apply to the jobs that you have found through job hunting, you may begin to feel overwhelmed by the job application process. You need to apply to many job openings to get the perfect job.
Because you are applying to many jobs, you need to stay organized with your job hunt. This organization will help you to succeed and get the job that you want.
One of the most important ways to stay organized with the job application process when you are applying to jobs is to follow the same process every time that you apply. This will help you to get into a routine as you apply to the many jobs that you have found.
A cover letter is the document that you send along with your resume, to introduce yourself to prospective employers. Many employers will choose to skip over resumes because of the lack of a well written cover letter.
No matter what type of job that you are applying to you need a well written cover letter.
You can look at a cover letter as someone introducing you to speak in front of an audience. It is one short page to introduce yourself and give a brief highlight of your skills. This is the place where you can convince the prospective employer to look over your resume.
