“Why should I hire you” – Best Interview Questions and Answers http://dougleschan.com/the-recruitment-guru/tell-me-about-yourself/job-interview-questions-and-answers-part-3-tell-me-about-yourself/


WHY SHOULD I HIRE YOU is often the last question you will be asked in an interview. Prepare for it. This is your chance to restate the skills you possess that are most relevant to the position and to summarize your other qualities that make you the perfect person for the job, and that’s why they should hire you. Outline your answer before you go in, so that you can answer clearly, concisely, and with confidence. Your answer should be short and to the point. It should reflect your professional background as it relates to current needs and problems of the position. Review the job description and tell how you are the right person for the job by matching up your skill set with each bullet point of the job description.

In formulating your answer as to why they should hire you, be sure to address these areas:

1. Determine their goals for the position. This should come up during your research into the company and the position. If possible, talk to others who work for the company. If you are unclear on this point, include it in the questions you ask at the interview and be prepared to incorporate it into your answer.

2. Show you have the skills needed for the job. Based on the goals you have identified in step one, determine how your skills and experience support those goals. If necessary, refer back to your list of skills.

  1. Is it wrong to tell the employer that you have other offers in consideration if they are making you wait for to long, like 3 months before you officially start working with them. This actually my case they are telling me its a matter of time which is frustrating, l like the offer however the response I got from them when emailed them about the delay is that you can go for other options if you have them. After 3 months seriously! I trusted there word and waited and went through all the interviews and test and this is the response I get? Please share your opinion

  2. Although I've already had a job and have been working happily, I came in to watch the video because of its title. However, I think the title is more appropriate to be the strategy forming the best answer for the question "Why should I hire you" than as it is because there is no best answers mentioned in the video. just my thought 🙂

  3. I will give honest feedback on the abilities of my manager.
    I will work safe, observe my surroundings, and report any hazards to my employer.
    I will question authority if it does not make sense.
    I will organize, strategize, and employ creative solutions to maximize efficiency, improve quality, and minimize effort.
    I will not follow instructions that are unsafe, illogical, inefficient, or harmful to the environment.
    I am honorable, loyal, and will respect you if you respect me.
    I am a team leader, and a leader that respects my team, works with my team, and a team will follow.
    I will eliminate the weak links from the team.
    I have an extensive technical background in civil engineering, engineering technology, computer science, construction, event setup and coordination, computer networking, computer aided design, carpentry, tool making, forging, interior/exterior maintenance, building management, plumbing, landscaping, snow removal, earth works, natural heritage education, bush craft, knife making, camping, fishing, and I like just about any sport you can play on a field.
    I will become your competitor and put you out of business if you do not hire me.
    ….Assassins exist.

  4. Question for the interviewer  ? How do you know who is lying in their interview ? Everything is about regurgitating a set format of answers most of what you want to hear and not really the truth. That's why we are here training to give you the answers you want. These stupid questions are asked of everyone, if you go for a CEO job or flipping burgers. We need a better system, because liars shouldn't be valued above honest people.

  5. I bombed my interview and i took it personally coz i showed eagerness and willing to except any position and shift but then afterwards I realized I proved to the interviewer im not fit for the job based on my nervousness (no resume in my hands) i showed and my answers to the questions weren't clear or met the company's expectations. So i took it as learning from my mistakes and i applied to another retail company. I passed the phone interview and using my resume to help answer the 'difficult' questions really helped to move me to the 2nd in person interview with the manager. After the interview she gave me a drug test with cotton swab in my mouth and i signed papers for them to give me a background check. Not sure if i got the job im waiting for them to call me coz the results take 24-48 hours :S this happend yesterday
