How to Answer
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 special accolades in your most recent position. There is nobody like you, and now you need to express that to the interviewer.
"I am the best candidate for you because I have a consistent history of exceeding my deadlines and surpassing employer expectations for the past three 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 above average skills in math and statistics which I will put to work immediately after being hired by your company."
Entry Level Example
"I am the best candidate for you because I show levels of dedication and follow through that is uncommon in the workplace. You will not be disappointed in my performance if you choose to hire me."
"I believe I'm the best candidate for your organization because of my decade of experience at your competitor. I have experience in the specific department in question, as a team leader, and I look forward to building on those leadership skills with your organization. I know I can make an immediate, and long-term, impact."
