    Why should we hire you?

      How to Answer

      This question is often a challenge for individuals to respond to when they are unsure or can't articulate how they can benefit the company. If you can't think of ways that you are unique, ask a few friends or family members what sets you apart from other people. Their observations may help you understand how you are perceived. It is also a good idea to think about the highlights of previous job performance reviews. If a supervisor praised you on a particular area that you do well or received recognition for making a significant impact on a project, feel free to mention this in your response if it relates to the job you are interviewing for.

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

      Rachelle's Answer

      "You should hire me because I am unlike anyone else you have interviewed before. When I started my current company, I was the youngest human resources professional they had ever hired. That didn't stop me from becoming benefits manager within six months. I am dedicated to my craft and engaged in this industry to the point where I commit myself to take at least one business development or leadership-related workshop every business quarter. You won't be disappointed when you hire me."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I'm qualified and passionate about your cause. I am excited about the idea of delivering value to your organization and will hustle for the opportunity to go above and beyond for your organization."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "In addition to my related degree in human resources and business administration, I bring eight years of HR and related experience, which I believe has prepared me well for this role. I am a hard worker, a team player, and I work tirelessly to get the job done. I thrive on challenges and always remain extremely committed to the success of any project."
