Claudia Miller

In an interview, the question “tell me about yourself” will often, if not always, come up. So how do you answer this effectively and help you stand out from other candidates?

In this episode, Claudia answers this important question and she shares the importance of this question for job seekers and employers. She shares the common mistakes that job seekers do when answering this question. She will also share a method that you can use when answering the question “tell me about yourself” and some samples using the same method.


In This Podcast We Talk About:

  • The common mistakes that job seekers do when planning or preparing to answer the question “Tell me about yourself”.

  • What is the role of the “tell me about yourself” question in the interview?

  • Answering the question “tell me about yourself” using the SAW Method.


About Me:
I started my career like many people do: in an entry level role making around $35K a year, was the first to arrive and last to leave, putting 110% into my job…But it wasn’t enough.

I was consistently being passed up for promotions and realized I was being underpaid compared to my colleagues.

I knew that in order to get ahead in my career and be able to make the money I wanted… to support the lifestyle I wanted…something had to change.

So, I started investing in myself. I worked with a career coach, resume writer, read every career book that I could get my hands on, enrolled in career courses, and studied colleagues who seemed to be crushing it in their careers. And after investing over $20,000 in resources, coaches, and books…and spending thousands of hours over five years…I realized that many of the common advice out there did NOT move the needle when it came to advancing your career!

Instead, I handpicked and carefully selected what worked to create my now signature program, 90-Day Job Offer, that is unlike anything that is out there. I wish a program like this existed when I was going through my career advancement and salary negotiations. If so, it would have been a fraction of the cost and saved me over four years of frustration of trial-and-error.

Since then, my clients have taken my ready-to-use resources to advance their careers in 90-days or less, and secured on average a 56% increase in salary (to date my clients have received $30,000 - $120,000 in additional earned income per year)!!

I help women in technology land fulfilling, high-paying jobs at a company that values and appreciates them. I’m on a mission to help women in tech collectively earn over a $1M in the next year.

Will you join me?
