What to answer when the interviewer asks ‘why should we hire you?’

There’s always that one question that catches you off guard at an interview such as ‘Why should we hire you?’  If you’re asked this question, don’t give a silly answer like ‘because I need a job!’.  The company wants to see that you’re passionate about the brand and the role. 

Here at u&i Recruitment we’ve put together some tips to help you to answer this question;

Consider the brand – is the company growing or a leader in the industry? If so then mention this as it shows that you’ve done your research.

Be prepared for the part – show the company that you’re experience and qualifications compliment the role. This will show the interviewer that you’re serious about the job and that you can meet the expectations of the company.   

How can you help the brand – express your hunger and motivation to work for the brand. This will show the interviewer that you’re willing to go the extra mile in order to get the job done and strive within the company.

Be enthusiastic – show the company that you’ve been passionate about working in the industry for a long period of time. 

If you’re asked this question at an interview take it seriously and give it your all with your answer otherwise the interviewer might think you’re in it for the money.
