Why are you the best person for this position?
Advice
Interview tip: Walk into the interview knowing you are the best person for the job and be able to tell them why. Other candidates may offer more experience and a broader spectrum of skills, but you offer something unique that will make you an asset to the company. Remember that! Now, how do you talk about it? "My compassion for animals and my commitment to accuracy and precision make me excellent at my job. I care about quality and understand the importance of efficiency. I am also easy going and fun to work with." The more you know about the company, the culture and the veterinarian, the more you will know what to share when asked the question. You want to highlight the areas of your skill that you know are important to them. And if you know how much they value teamwork and positive attitudes, talk about how you embody those values.
