One interview question (or some variation) job seekers frequently get is, “Why should we hire you?”
This has to be one of the toughest questions we face because we are now self promoting and selling ourselves.
My suggestion to get comfortable in answering it is ask yourself this question ahead of time, “Would you hire you” and why?
If you cannot sell yourself you have little chance of selling anyone else on your abilities.
So think about your work experience.
Think about what you did no one else could do as well, fast or less expensive.
What are the things your peers or boss would turn to you for help with?
What do you like to do that no one else does?
Have some of those thoughts (talking points) ready for the “Why we should hire you” question and you will find yourself much more confident in who you are, what you do and why they should give you an offer.
