Imagine yourself in the place of your potential employer. He needs, for example, to find a lawyer on projects in the field of real estate transactions with experience of three years or more. He may be the most important? First, what real estate transactions the candidate has worked? There are lawyers, who for many years engaged in roughly the same (say, support of transactions on the real estate leases), and there are those who gradually worked with different types of such transactions. Secondly, it is important in what companies you worked for. It is no secret that there are companies that are highly traded in the market, and there are some which from serious the employer may cause only a smile. Surely the employer has viewed your resume before the interview, but he can't remember everything. It is necessary to tell.
There are other important points. Of great importance are the results of your work, your achievements. About them it is necessary to tell, making sure, however, that it didn't look like bragging. Be sure to mention if you have references from former employers, since many employers are interested in this.
If you have studied or interned abroad, it is necessary to mention. Even if education or training is not very useful at the workplace, the presence of additional diploma will show the applicant as the person ambitious and goal-oriented.
In most cases, the employer will be sufficiently interested in the personal aspects of your life - for example, if you are married, have children, what are your Hobbies. You should not fear this or be considered invasion of privacy. These questions can be really important: applicant with young kids will often ask to let her go early from work or take time off, but if work schedule in the company of intense, frequent processing, the employer would not be profitable to let go of her often, as she will not be comfortable in such company. The lie here is irrelevant.
The right to talk about yourself for a job interview means not only to correctly answer questions but also ask your. First, it is important for the applicant: it is better to know more about the company and work in it. Second, the employer will make a good impression applicant actively interested in the company and the job, and not one who will come of sitting for a set period of time.
