Many times when you step into an interview, the person who is put in charge of speaking to you has yet to review your résumé and immediately fires back with the typical interview question, "tell me about yourself."

Many job seekers have faced this interview question before they could even get a chance to get settled and comfortable with the situation, largely due to the fact that the hiring manager hasn't yet reviewed their resume. This could be due to multiple reasons, from your resume not changing hands quickly enough to the hiring manager simply having a busy schedule. Whatever the reason may be, if a manager starts out the interview by asking a candidate to tell them about themselves, there are a few tips you can follow so that you don't break a sweat.
