DEALofaLifetimeDEALofaLifetime

Hi guys/gals :o)

I'll get straight to it im in need of some help! Im applying for a job with Asda online right now and im a bit stumped about what to write in the section where it says tell us about yourself, but being the loner that I am I dont have that many hobbies and interests and what not to write about! I am into fitness, and I do like playing video games :o) ect, but my interests I guess end there... if someone could give me a few hints or tips or a few pointers about what to write about I would griningly :o) appreciate it.

Im sure somones gonna take the ****! :o)
Thank you HUKD

    'I enjoy cleaning at 5a.m.' would probably help with the job I assume you're applying for.

    PS dont admit to not being aware of 'google', it will only highlight your poor level of social awareness.

    Lie. I am sure they won't stalk you to try and find you out.

    Just say you're a friendly person who never hesitates to help others, you enjoy learning new things and are interested in fitness (specify what kind of fitness briefly) and casual video gaming.

    If you say what Wilmavein suggested, you will surely seem like a serial killer :)

    Make up some nonsense about you like to spend your time on a shopping forum helping others to find the best deals at Tesco, Morrisons, Sainburys and umm nope i think thats it


    It sounds better if you start the sentence with "I do voluntary work helping less fortunate people to find the best deals at Tesco, Morrisons, Sainburys etc."

    just say you enjoy team sports - emphasizes fitness and team work

    write about any clubs you belong to, courses you have done, travel etc, talk about commited your are to everything you do, how reliable etc

    Have a look at whats expected of you in the role you would be taking on and tailor your responses accordingly. They will expect you to be friendly and helpful for instance. Try to give experiences from your life where you can say you have been those things.

    Don't just say 'I'm into fitness'. Say something like 'I keep to a fitness routine that requires me to be organised and determined. I set myself goals for what I want to achieve in a month and work exceptionally hard to achieve them.' Try to include some teamwork. Say you go to the gym with someone and you are always challenging each other to do better.

    Tell them about your pending court case

    Fitness - how you like a challenge and test yourself & your body - like to push it to the next level - then state how that reflects on the rest of your life - it makes you more determined, ambitious etc.

    Flow with it baby.

    Failing that, you could say your fitness means you have seriously tight buns - just in case any fellows in HR swing that way (or the ladies think SHAZAM! and want to butter your bread etc)

    tell them about u... say u like games, tell them u ur into ur fitness and how u keep it up,
    they are not looking for noble prize winners, they just prob wana check you can form sentances.
    Maybe tell them your life plan if you have one its not a test specifically....

    When i went for asda interview u had to make up a jingle there and then....
