This is almost always the first question in the interview and this is the perfect moment for you to shine — not to give them a 10 minute life history. The answers need to be a quick rundown of your qualifications and experience. Tell them about your education, work history, recent career experience and future goals, the information they want to hear.
For example: “I graduated from University X and ever since then, I’ve been working in public relations with an agency that I’ve generated millions of PR hits to my clients. Even though I’ve enjoyed working on the agency side, I would like to expand my horizons and do PR for corporate companies like this one.”
