How to Answer

Bragging about yourself in an interview can be tough to do, but this is your time to shine! Which characteristics and career accomplishments have made you a stand-out candidate? Perhaps you have received some academic awards or have been given individual accolades in your most recent position. There is nobody like you, and now you need to express that to the interviewer.

Professional Answer Examples
Answer example

"I am the best candidate for you because I have a consistent history of exceeding my targets and goals for the past three years. I have been promoted two times in the last year which is nearly unheard of in my current company. In addition to these successes, I have very excellent cold calling skills which I will put to work immediately after being hired by your company."

Answer example

"I believe my success with your company will come from having all of the hard skills that you are looking for, whether learned in school or gained through work experience. I know all the key players in this region and stay informed of best practices so that I can be the most supportive executive assistant out there."

Answer example

"I am the best candidate for you because I show levels of dedication and follow through that is uncommon in the workplace. As a manager, my team members are always very responsive to my upbeat and open approach. You will not be disappointed in my performance if you choose to hire me."

Answer example

"I believe I'm the best candidate for your company because I have a background in sales, I've worked as a freelance marketing consultant, and now I have worked on the agency side as well. Combining these three silos of marketing is something I know will be of tremendous value to your organization and the sales and marketing projects we will work on together. Also, I want it more than anyone else. This position is a calculated move for me, not one of desperation or a blind leap, so I know that I would be a great fit for you, and you for me."

Answer example

"I believe I'm the best candidate for your company because of my decade of experience at your competitor. I have experience in the specific department in question, as a team leader, and I look forward to building on those leadership skills with your organization. I know I can make an immediate, and long-term, impact."

Answer example

"When I read your job posting I smiled from ear to ear because it was as though you had written it with me in mind. I know that I am the best candidate for this role because I have three years of exceeding my sales goals, inside and outside sales experience, and I know the industry. Also, I was the fastest promoted in my previous position and have led the rollout of new markets in my current position, making me ideally positioned for helping you continue to build your sales organization, markets, and exceed financial metrics. Not to mention, I am looking for a company that I can stay with for the long-term, something that you mentioned you value as well."

Answer example

"I know that I would be an excellent fit for the rest of the Spanish team, the faculty as a whole, and can bring a unique, fun perspective to the Spanish department and students. Not only am I bilingual, but also I lived in Spain, Mexico, and Colombia for a total of 8 years. I feel this uniquely positions me to leverage that real-life experience to educate my students. By bringing my academic, professional, and real-life experiences to my students, I can create an engaging classroom and ignite excitement in my students."

Stage Manager
Answer example

"In addition to my educational qualifications and experience which I believed prepared me for this role, I am a hard-worker, a team player and work tirelessly to get the job done. I thrive on challenges and always remain extremely committed to the success of any project."

Slot Attendant
Answer example

"I believe that my determination and willingness to work hard makes me the best candidate for this job. I am always ready for challenges and never hesitate to work hard when needed."

Answer example

"I know that you may have received applications from several applicants that have the same qualifications as I do, but what possibly makes me different and better from the others is my excellent risk analysis skills accompanied with the fact that I trained under the best in this profession. Also, I am very punctual and organized and have a great attention to detail which also means I make almost no errors in my work."

Wildlife Biologist
Answer example

"You should hire me because I have the right educational and professional qualifications that you require, as well as the right personality traits. I am a hardworking professional, a team player and have excellent relationship building skills."
