Why should we hire you? How to answer the dreaded interview question

Kirstin on Fullback and Friends | If you have invested quality time in your application (which should always include researching the employer), you will have alread started to build the foundations of your supporting evidence for these typical types of interveriew questions, before you have even heard back from the employer with an invite to interview.

This type of interview question, should not be feared, and in fact, should be one that you should be proud to answer, as it is an opportunity to showcase your strengths, and work background.  You need to be convincing the interview panel that your skills, and experience is complimentary to the opportunity available, and that you have a genunine interest in the company role (consider your personal values and compare them to the companies.  By researching the companies, corporate social responsibility, will help you address this).

Make your answer personal to you and your achievements, background and interest, and you can’t go wrong.
