In this YouTube example, the interviewee was asked this common job interview question: Tell Me About Yourself.
Her answer begins with a clear, concise, focused summary of the work she does. Then she says how she wants to apply it. The interviewee provides brief examples that prove she has all the experience she claims to have. This is all done perfectly here!
The answer had to be general because it was a mock interview; in a real interview, you would want to add content specific to the company and the position to which you were applying.
