 Tell me about yourself“というのは、英語の面接の冒頭でよく使われる言葉ですが、私たち、特に英語を母国語としない人にとっては、意外と難しい言葉なのではないでしょうか。






では、“Tell me about yourself“と聞かれたら、どう答えたらいいのでしょうか。













“I am currently a Senior Manager with 3 staff. I used to have 7 staff but the company cut some people. I am looking for a job where I can use English. I learned English at University in the Vancouver. I was married to a Canadian and worked there but I got divorced and moved to Japan in 2015. I couldn’t find a job right away and I didn’t like the first job I got, so I left after 9 months and joined my current company.”



“I am originally from Japan but I attended university in Vancouver where I studied Marketing as well as English. After graduating, I joined a local marketing agency for several years where I learned more about Western Marketing and Branding.


I returned to Japan in 2015 and briefly worked at a domestic agency where I learned the Japanese business language and practices and how to apply my experience in the local Tokyo market. Soon after, I had an opportunity to join my current company where I have been for the past 7 years. I am currently a Senior Manager with 3 staff. I am happy in my current role, but I learned about your opportunity and feel that my Marketing abilities, as well as my understanding of both local and Western business, will make me a great fit. I am really excited to learn more about this opportunity and how I might add value to your team!”
