Why are you the best candidate for this position?
Let's take a look at the job description first, shall we? You will find a list of qualities and responsibilities that the interviewer expects you to be able to meet. Otherwise they wouldn't have called you! Now think beyond the job description. Now is a time to show off how your skills and traits will make a difference on your new team. Consider answering this question by demonstrating how you have proven yourself in your past roles. Talk about how your communication skills helped you get along with a difficult team, or how you used your organizational skills to keep confidential information secure and accurate. It depends on the job. Keep your strengths and examples relevant to what you may be expected to accomplish in this new role. Remember, you have so much to offer!
