Why Should We Hire You For This Job?

Why Should We Hire You For This Job?

This is a common interview question, and it is one of the tricky ones….The best way to answer this question is to be prepared for your interview!

The reason employers ask this question is because they want to make sure you are confident that you can do the job and prove that you are the right person to do the job.

It’s also sort of a bold question, one that is kind of meant to challenge you a bit and see how you respond to pressure.

Here are 5 steps to follow to help you answer this question with confidence:

1.  Know the job description well

You absolutely need to know the job description like the back of your hand to ace this question.  Study everything from the overview to the daily responsibilities to the qualifications.  Truly understand what you are interviewing for and know what your interviewers are looking for.

2.  Know how to apply your past experiences to it

Read through the “responsibilities” or “tasks” and be able to talk about similar tasks you’ve done in the past.  Look at the qualifications and desired qualities and be able discuss how you meet them. This question is more about how your skills line up with what the company is looking for. You focus on your accomplishments that most closely match the job you’re going after.

3.  Talk results

If you’re proving yourself to your interviewer, you’re going to want to talk about what you personally can bring to the table.  You don’t want to be just another candidate. You want to be seen as an asset who is ready to add value right away.

4.  Make sure you come across as a “good fit.”

Doing well in a job isn’t just about what you do, but also how you go about doing it.  Will you be a perfect fit?  Learn as much as you can about the company (and the company culture) before the interview and emphasize why you’d fit in there.

5.  Close the sale and make it compelling!

Every good sale has a great closing.  Wrap up your answer in a way that is confident, concise, and enthusiastic.  Don’t go totally overboard, but make it memorable.
