Ever had a hiring committee, manager, or potential peer ask you, “Why should we hire you?”

Talk about intimidation, right?

Be ready because there’s no better setup for you to sell yourself and your skills to the interviewer. Every employer has an ideal candidate at the start of the hiring process.

The “Why should we hire you?” question affords you the perfect opportunity to prove you are that candidate.

Identify yourself in the employer’s online writings and job listings. Any time you see something in those documents that makes you think, “That’s me! That’s why I’m a perfect fit for this job!”

Jot it down.

These are the things to highlight in your “Why should we hire you?” pitch.
