Tell me about yourself,
I gave my background information and tied my experience into my response
This is a typical interview question. Practice a 60 second response. Your response tells an interviewer much more than your experience. Your confidence, preparation and choice of words convey your suitability for a challenging position. Your eagerness, your education, your anticipation of the obvious question all shows in your answer. If you mumble, stumble and drone on, you show that you failed to prepare, failed to anticipate and probably are not the person they want running their business. *NOTE: Its easy to find excuses for not getting hired. "They don't like me because I'm different" is a crutch. Perhaps they saw that attitude in your interview and that is why they don't want to hire you.
