Why are you the best candidate for us?
Bragging about yourself in an interview can be really 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 special accolades in your most recent position. There is nobody like you and now you need to express that to the interviewer.
Answer examples
"I am the best candidate for you because I have a consistent history of exceeding my targets and goals for the past 3 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 excellent cold calling skills which I will put to work immediately after being hired with your company."
"I am the best candidate for you because I show levels of dedication and follow through that are uncommon in the workplace. You will not be disappointed in my performance, if you choose to hire me."
"I believe my success with Common Interview Questions will come from having all of the hard kills 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."
Sales answer example
"When I read the job description, I laughed because it was truly as though you had written it with me in mind. I know that I am the best candidate for this role because I have 3 years of exceeding my sales goals, inside and outside sales experience, and I know the industry. In addition, I was the fastest promoted in my previous position and have led the roll out 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 haul, something that you mentioned you value earlier as well."
Retail answer example
"I believe I'm the best candidate for Common Interview Questions because of my decade of experience at your competitor. I have experience in the exact department in question, as a team lead, and I look forward to building on those leadership skills with your organization. I know I can make an immediate, and long-term, impact."
Teacher 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 really 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 am able to create a really engaging classroom and ignite excitement in my students."
Marketing answer example
"I believe I'm the best candidate for Common Interview Questions 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 efforts we will work on together. In addition, I want it more than anyone else. This is a calculated move for me, not one of desperation or a random leap, so I know that I would be a great fit for you, and you for me, and I want this more than anything."
