This is a frequent interview question that many of us heard. It’s an open-ended and we often feel clueless as to what the recruiter wants to hear.

It’s very important to answer well because interviewers gather a lot from your reaction from your reply. They want to know that you want the job not just because you need work, or because you would be a good fit for this particular job.

It’s not about you:

Candidates would answer this question by expressing their desire to work for the company. For example: “I’m very impressed by “###” company’s growth and I would like to make the company even more successful.”

That sounds professional, which is focused on the candidate’s needs and desires, and not on the company’s.

It should be all about them:

The Recruiter isn’t interested in what you want. He’s trying to fill the position with right candidate - the one who will add the most value to his team.

And this is why the ‘why should I hire you?’ question is a great opportunity for you. It’s your best shot to tell them exactly why you would be the perfect fit for this job.

Get the answer just right

Prepare your answer before you arrive for the interview. If the question comes up, you’ll have a ready answer.

In order to make it all about them, here are the steps to take:

  1. Think about what knowledge, skills and experiences are important in this particular job.
  2. Identify the one which you have.
  3. Choose the top 3 Skill, Knowledge and experience, and prepare a sentence about each that explains what the skill or experience is, and how and why it is valuable to this company.

Do you see how easy and effective this can be? By doing some research and following this simple planning process, you’ll be able to express yourself with a powerful answer, when the recruiter asks: “why should I hire you?”
