How would you describe yourself in an interview?

Having to prepare for a job interview, you'll have to face one of the most asked questions among interviewer and it is not as easy as it really sounds unless you are truly a person with great achievements.
"How would you describe yourself?"
What is difficult in this is when you have not quite the idea in what way would it satisfy the job hirer. Is it appropriate to mention hobbies that are not related to the job? Won't the words that you use for describing yourself be words that the interviewer have heard hundreds of times. How would one be able to stand out if this were the case? 

Oh tell me. How would you go ahead and describe yourself? How would you market yourself?

I have had trouble with this for ages. But it could have only been that I was lacking confidence to be able to market myself.

Job interview is a process of collecting first-hand information from the interviewees to know whether or not they are capable of the assigned tasks that will surely help in the effective execution of any business ideals. Just some piece of advice, you need to be calm and focus. Of course, it’s not very easy especially when you are a first timer but it would give you more ways to be more spontaneous in answering questions.
Cliche as it is, your body language would tell how confident you are as an aspirant in landing a particular job. Sometimes, you think that you are confident enough but your actions or body language says otherwise. Interviews is not just setting your best foot forward but having the audacity to be authentic. Most interviews would likely to asks your edge or something unique about you that sets you apart from any other applicants and the best way to answer is through your experience or real life lesson. However, for those first timers who doesn’t have the experience, it is the willingness and openness to learn alongside with the company. It has to be a mutually benefited experience wherein both the company and yourself will grow.
When you are asked about the position you are aiming for, you need to discuss on how you view the job. Aside from knowing the job description beforehand, you need to know what you are putting yourself into. You also have to put in mind that you are not there to impress the interviewer but to show them that you are qualified, confident and efficient in your undertaking because at the end of the day your job will be your life - means of providing and living a better future.

When I face this kind of question, I just answer it by telling something about my work attitude. You can tell them your qualities that makes them seek how good you are as an employee or how fit you are for the work. It would be best also if you review their job qualification because most of the time they mention there what kind of employee they want such as "hardworking", "keen with details", et cetera. Knowing these, you'll be able to pattern your answer and show them that the job is really for you.
