This is another way of asking why you think you are more suitable for this job than other candidates who are applying for the same position. Interviewers have seen your resume, they might have already asked what your strengths are, then why this question again.
This question frequently asked in the end of the interview.
Here the interviewer is giving you a final opportunity to pitch yourself and also to see whether they have made the right decision (yes, they might have already made up their mind by now).
This question is extremely important as you have to put across your point without coming across as a show-off and at the same time showing the Interviewer what sets you apart from other possible candidates. However, it’s not easy to answer this question. And you don’t want to screw your chances after making it so far.
Some common answers which people give are:
You would know that.
Because I am the best.
You have no other choice.
I am desperate to work for this company.
I would agree to work for way less than what you are offering.
The above answers are a strict No-No. So, if you have any of these answers in mind, its time for a reality check as these answers won’t help your case. So, how to prepare for this question.
