Interview is the gateway between you and your dream organization. They determine you will get in or stay outside. You need to crack many codes to get through. One can predict types of questions, but can never predict exact question series, as it is highly subjective matter. It varies from interviewer to interviewer & from candidate to candidate. So, you don’t have control to device your interview, but of course you can well handle some parts of interview. Introduction is such one part. Almost every interview commences with the basic question - Give brief detail of yours?

Most common question and probably first question asked during interview is "Give a brief detail of your" or "Give your brief intruction". Do you think interviewer not knowing about you?

Candidate never knows but it tricky question. Interviewer has candidate’s resume in his hand. Interviewer is able to read it or before read it. But still he asks this question to candidate. What he is wanting from candidate? Did you thing about this? Never right? Due to this reason this is very tricky question. Using this question interviewer wants very short detail of yours. Most of case candidate gives full detailing as introduction. But actually it is wrong method to attend this type of tricky question.
