How to answer the interview question: “Why should we hire you?” By Matthew Coppola

This really is your chance to demonstrate to the interviewer why you are a great candidate for the role and the value that you can bring their company.

Think carefully about what it is that they are looking for. You will be able to find this under the key selection criteria or requirements of the position on the job advertisement. The value that you can bring in the role you are being interviewed for should relate back to the requirements. Pick 3. It will be easier to remember. For example, if they are looking for someone who is excellent at engaging clients and building solid working relationships, then it would be a good idea to say that you are very good at nurturing existing relationships as has been seen in your past role/s where you…..for company… and so forth. If you are going to make a bold statement to sell yourself to the employer, it’s a good idea to back yourself up with evidence of this.

Stick to 3 reasons why they should hire you and it would even be a good idea at the end of mentioning your 3 reasons to be more specific about what you can do for their company if they hire you.
