CIVIL Services Question:

Tell me something interesting about yourself?


Don’t be embarrassed or mention that you collect beer mats. Take this opportunity to make some positive statements. In particular your relevant strengths, qualities, achievements and recent experience could all be described. Equally, if you possess a particular distinction it should be mentioned here. An example could be a sporting achievement of significance, a local honor for helpfulness or bravery or anything else that will help the interviewer single you out in their mind: as long as it is positive and commendable of course.

You may be asked about something you have mentioned in your application. In which case you will be expected to be reasonably knowledgeable and interested in the topic. Be prepared!
