Common interview Question (Why should we hire you?)

The interviewer wants to know, what makes you the best fit for this position? The best way to respond is to give concrete examples of why your skills and accomplishments make you the best candidate for the job.

After all, the whole interview process is about answering this question.

You need to sell yourself, so the more detail you give, the better your answer will be. This is not a time to talk about what you want.

 Rather, it is a time to outline your accomplishments and relate what makes you best from other candidates.

Key Tips:

  • Don’t exaggerate too much about yourself.
  • Focus on your education, work experience, skills, aptitudes and abilities which differentiate you from your competitors.
  • Before facing the job interview, you should have a general sense of how to communicate. Please check out some of the tips on “GENERAL TIPS” Section in the menu left to your mobile screen.
  • Your answer should be targeted towards interviewers’ expectations, not your personal needs.
  • Avoid highlighting the points like:  I need money, I need promotion, I need job, I want to work in the best location, I’ve always been interested in your work or company, etc.
  • Emphasize Your Knowledge and Experience to Demonstrate Your Value.
  • Don’t just highlight the points or simply rattle off the bullet points listed in the job description. Explain your main qualities in detail.
