Interview Tips Q & ATell me Something which is not on your resume?
Sometimes, interviewers want to go beyond what you have shared with them on your resume to uncover a more comprehensive picture of your background. Hiring managers ask this question to get a sense of your personality and character, rather than just your work experiences and accomplishments. They’re also giving you a chance to tell them something that you have forgotten to mention in your resume.

The best way to answer this question is to highlight some important and positive points about yourself. Do not ask them back, " What do you want to know more?" etc. You have to come up with something that is decent and will help you in portraying yourself in the right light. DO NOT mention personal details like your family background UNLESS the interviewer asks for it. It takes up unnecessary time, maybe a turn off for some interviewers, can be against the policy of some companies, and is not one of the most important things you need to mention.
