Question 4 of 30

Why are you the best candidate for us?

The Goal

Essentially, the interviewer is asking why they should hire you over anyone else. When it comes to hiring decisions, a company will choose the person they believe will help them solve a problem or a pain point. For this reason, the goal of your response is to clearly outline how you will address and help solve the hiring company's most significant needs and pain points.

      What to Avoid

      Avoid a response like, 'I am the best candidate because this is my dream job.' An answer like this is all about you, the job seeker, and not about the hiring company or how hiring you will benefit them.

      Another common mistake is to respond by giving a general overview of your resume or work history. Your response should spotlight the reasons why your achievements, skills, and characteristics are a match for the hiring company's most pressing needs.

      Written by Rachelle Enns on January 8th, 2022

      Pro Tip

      This question is an opportunity to pitch yourself. The hiring company needs to understand how saying 'yes' to you will benefit them. You can also imagine that the interviewer is asking, 'What's in it for us if we hire you.' Consider telling a story along with your response. Studies show that when we provide an anecdote or a story, we become immensely more memorable.

      How to Answer

      Carefully look at the job description and dissect what the hiring company is genuinely looking for in a candidate. Try to uncover what problem the company is trying to solve by filling this role. Be prepared to discuss a few of your hard skills and soft skills that you know will help you succeed in the job. Hard skills are specific knowledge gained through training and education. Soft skills are traits you possess, like emotional intelligence and sociability.

      Also, be prepared to talk about the present and the future. Rather than thinking only in the now, help the interviewer imagine you in the role for years to come.

      1st Answer Example

      "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 consistently exceed 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 excellent cold calling skills, which I will immediately put to good use."

      Written by Rachelle Enns on January 8th, 2022

      Manager Example

      "I understand your company is seeking a manager with a proven ability to lead a team of field sales reps. You seek a leader who can properly train, motivate, and encourage a boost in sales numbers while providing the tools for each team member to perform at their peak ability. My experience, and past results, align very well with this need. I am an experienced leader, having trained over 50 successful outside sales reps this year alone. My teams' retention rate is the highest in my company. Over 80% of my team members have exceeded their goals for this quarter already. I am a passionate trainer and mentor who is very hands-on and approachable. I would love to bring these skills and traits to your company."

      Written by Rachelle Enns on January 8th, 2022

      Admin Example

      "I believe my success with your company will come from having advanced-level skills in a significant range of administrative programs and the ability to troubleshoot technical issues for the team. My technical abilities have saved my current employer hundreds of downtime and IT billing hours. I also have strong vendor relationships with local conference facilities, trainers, keynote speakers, and hotels, which makes me a highly efficient executive assistant who can save you a lot of funds when it comes to travel, bookings, and company-related events."

      Written by Rachelle Enns on January 8th, 2022

      Sales Example

      "As desired by your company, I have inside and outside sales experience, and I know the telecommunications industry very well. I have exceeded my sales goals for three years in a row. I have led the rollout of new markets in my current position, making me well-positioned to help you continue to build your sales proposition while breaking into new markets."

      Written by Rachelle Enns on January 8th, 2022

      Retail Example

      "I believe I'm the best candidate for your company because I have a background in retail sales, and I've worked as a merchandiser and inventory specialist. Combining these skills, I will bring tremendous value to your retail organization when positioning and pushing products out at a faster rate. I am confident that my knowledge will bring an immediate and long-term impact."

      Written by Rachelle Enns on January 8th, 2022

      Teacher Example

      "I know that I would be an excellent fit with your existing Spanish team and the faculty as a whole. I will bring this unique and upbeat perspective that you mentioned is lacking in the Spanish curriculum. I am bilingual, and I lived in Spain, Mexico, and Colombia for eight years. I feel these cultural experiences uniquely position me to pass that real-life experience and energy onto your students. I can create an engaging classroom and ignite excitement in these deserving students."

      Written by Rachelle Enns on January 8th, 2022

      Marketing Example

      "I understand that you are looking for a marketing manager who can lead a remote team of graphic designers, copywriters, and ad sales professionals. I lead a team of 15 remote employees and 12 in-house employees in my current position. It has been a great experience learning how to merge these two teams, ensuring that projects come together on time. This year, I was awarded manager of the year after being nominated by my peers and leadership team. If you choose to hire me, I will bring tenacity and dedication, leading your remote team to optimum performance and success."

      "My previous work experience in typescript, React.js, and Node.js match your particular tech stack. I know all of the caveats and libraries that are commonly used with those technologies which significantly speeds up development time since I am used to those types of problems. I have also worked at 2 e-commerce companies and since you are also e-commerce, I am used to those particular product's features and business requirements.



      I also worked 6 internships through my college education which entails that I have solid experience in being able to adapt and learn a new technology and product which is crucial when onboarding at a new tech company. This is a unique life experience which I posses which many other college grads do not.

      Your answer actually makes that common mistake we outlined of giving a general overview of your resume or work history. Although you do outline the soft skills not detailed on your resume, you center them around accomplishments that are likely detailed on your resume. Why should they hire you over anyone else? How have you helped solve the company’s most significant needs?

      "I learn fast. I know this is a desirable trait whenever onboarding a new hire into a role. But the way I go about learning is by building work relations by valuing everyone’s input and perspective. In my opinion, there is no better way to establish strong lasting relationships than working hard, keeping your head down, and tapping into every resource, and that starts with valuing every member of the team as a resource. It shows you respect them, and that is the best way of earning other’s respect. Once I’ve achieved that, and like I said, I learn fast, I will continue to discover every other resource, and pick up everyone’s tricks-of-the-trade along the way. Once I’ve picked up how to navigate all the procedures and systems, I’ll kaizen those systems and see how I can adjust them for my own style. I am all about streamlining systems. I truly believe the easiest way to do something should always be the right way to do it. So if there are ways to cut corners, or shortcuts for getting the work done faster, than those systems need adjusting until those shortcuts are unnecessary. I’ll also put my all in by building relationships with our stakeholders. Once I have sure-footing, I’ll continue to expand my comfort zone, careful not to bite off more than I can chew. As I see it, it’s my job to make my leader’s job easier. I do this by tapping into the big picture scope, and actively listening at all times, putting my all in and living up to the clutch-player label I’ve carried with me throughout my career."

      Can you speak further about the impact that these improvement investigations have made? Try giving the interviewer a more precise idea of the impact your leadership has made.

      "How I lead mirrors the values of my current employer. My people skills allow me to help lead employees to work harder for me, and in turn, the patients feel that. Patient care has always been a priority to me as well as being efficient and seeing the big picture of how we can be better."

      The fact that everyone wants to work hard for you is a great answer! Do you have firmer stats on how much you have increased productivity in your current role? To make a stronger impact, try incorporating numbers and facts versus all feelings. This answer should be a blend of both.

      "I model my leadership after the values of the employer I am in partnership with, which are of course are aligned with my own values. My strong interpersonal skills informed me long ago of the value of working smarter and harder. Sometimes it is smarter to work harder next to your staff to set the pace and lead by example. Additionally, patient care has always been my top priority, as well as staying efficient, keeping my focus on the big picture at all times, to inform me of how we can be better every day at what we do."
