    Why are you the best candidate for us?

      When it comes to hiring decisions, a company will choose the person that they believe will help them to solve a problem or a pain point. By clearly discussing how you will address the hiring company's most significant needs, you are positioning yourself as the top choice candidate. When you arrive at an interview with a compelling pitch prepared, you can answer this question with utmost confidence.

      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.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "From our discussion, I believe that one of your company's most important goals is to increase sales numbers, and quickly. I am the best candidate for you because I have a consistent history of exceeding my targets and goals. Because of my dedication to exceeding targets, 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 immediately put to good use."

      "I am the best candidate because of my experience in technology combined with my communication and overall leadership skills."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Be more specific on your technology experience. This interview question is one of the most critical for any interview so it's important that you do an exceptional job 'selling' your skills to the interviewer.

      "I am the best candidate for you because I am an expert user in {technology}, with a complete understanding of {technology or industry}. As a manager, I show the ability to lead a team with integrity and accountability."

      "I am the best candidate because I understand what it takes to be a part of something great. I have been a part of great teams and have had the opportunity to excel and exceed quotas for 5 years. I have been promoted twice within a year and a half and have been mentored by leaders who care about the company's success, not just themselves. This, in turn, has been invaluable to my development as a salesperson and a valued team member."

      This is a nice start! If you want to make it more tailored and specific, try bringing in elements of the job description, what pain points you can solve for the future employer, and how your work ethics/core values align with the company's mission itself.

      Lauren's Answer

      I added wording about you being a “standout” candidate. You already have brand loyalty, so I enhanced your response slightly.

      "I believe that my personality, skill set, and loyalty to the company sets me apart from other candidates. I can bring so much to the team, and I would like to enhance continued training and team development. I truly believe this would be a great fit because of the passion and years of experience I bring."
