How to Answer

Interviewers want to hear about that one unique skill that sets you apart from the other candidates applying for this job. Think of your answer as your 'elevator pitch' or your qualifying statement. If you can't think of ways that you are unique, ask a few friends or family members what they feel sets you apart from other people. Their observations may help you understand how you are perceived.

Perhaps you already know what sets you apart! This skill could include any industry accolades, exceptional achievements, additional industry related training, a second language, or how involved you are in the community. Don't be afraid to brag about yourself a bit. In an interview, you are your most influential advocate.

Why should we hire you?
Abdominal Sonographer

"I'm qualified and passionate about your cause, as well as patient care. I am excited about the idea of delivering value to your organization and will go above and beyond for your patients."

Addiction Nurse

"You should hire me because I am incredibly passionate about the community outreach work that you do. I appreciate your passion for helping others and will match the enthusiasm of your current team."

Addiction Psychiatrist

"You mentioned today that the biggest pain-point for your practice is that you cannot find psychiatrists who have experience in addictions and group therapy, who are also bi-lingual. I am fluent in Spanish, French, and English, and also bring the experience leading group therapy efforts, for which you are seeking. This stand-out blend of skills is one of the reasons why my current practice embraced me so quickly, and I look forward to delivering the same results to your office."

Addiction Therapist

"Don't be fooled by this trick question. The interviewer isn't interested in your cheesy statement that you are the best person for the job. They have an idea you probably are, the chose to interview you. The interviewer wants to know why you chose this line of work, your education and how your past employment directly supports the position you are applying to. Answer this question with your rehearsed and memorized elevator speech. Make it unique and convincing or they will move to the next candidate. "

Their perceptions will help you understand how you are perceived and what makes you the perfect person for the opportunity."

Anesthesiologist Assistant

"You should hire me because I have the list of qualifications you are looking for, great communication skills and bedside manner with my patients."

Art Director

With over ___ years of experience in the field, and my education in ____, I feel that I can offer a new perspective and dimension to this agency."
