Why Should We Hire You? Learn How to Answer This Job Interview Question with this #1 tip ✓


How to answer; Why Should We Hire You? Well, to start with; that’s the entire purpose
of the interview, isn’t it? It is for you to give answers to why they
should hire you. If you do a great job in the interview, and
implant your messages of why YOU are the best candidate, then there will not be a question
of “why should we hire you” at the end of the interview. A hiring manager will not waste his time asking
that question if you already made him feel that you are the right candidate. I am Deniz Sasal. I am a manager with PwC Consulting, the creator
of Landing Interviews Guaranteed and The Career Mastery. I try to help unemployed and underemployed
find amazing jobs through my free video training series. Alright let’s continue. Let’s say the hiring manager isn’t sure
yet and he still asked. What do we do? Well, that’s what I am going to share with
you today. Watch until the end of this video to learn
the best way to answer this question. Soon you will learn the best way to answer
this question. But I just need you to be patient. Let’s first analyze the situation. First things first. What are your main objectives? What do you need to accomplish with your answers? Well, you need to convince them that;
– You will fit in well with the organization culture
– You possess all the skillsets and experience required
– Hiring you will make them look smart – You can deliver great results
Great! So far so good
Now, in order to give these impressions, you need to understand the requirements of the
role. So, think of about
– What skills are required in the job description? – What experience are they looking for? These are different things. Now, I think we got the fundamentals out of
the way. It’s about time we take it one level further. I believe you probably fit one of the 2 categories;
You are either an experienced hire with many years of experience or a fresh graduate with
limited experience. Let’s start with the first one, shall we? If you have years of experience, then you
need to know that you the time has long gone for you to “take more than you give”. You are not a fresh graduate, you have years
of experience, so we expect hardcore results from you. Right? You may even be joining the firm to solve
a particular problem. Maybe increase the revenue if it’s a sales
role, or whatever. It’s No big deal. You just have to prove in the interview that
you can generate results. To do that, I suggest you use presentation. When they ask you why should we hire you,
then you should just take out your printed out presentation and demonstrate your abilities
and past experiences. You can use these slides on the screen. I will be sure to put a download link in the
description below as well. Anyway, let’s continue, while crafting your
slides, think about the examples from your own career. Example is the absolute proof that you could
do it before, right? That means you can do it again. Each example should illustrate;
– what was the problem – what did you do
– and what was the result. If you can, then also write down the methodology
you applied while solving the problem. This is especially true if you are applying
for a consulting role. We are really interested in application of
methodologies. That’s it for the experienced hire. Now, let’s talk about candidates with limited
experience. If that’s the case, then your job will be
a bit different. And you will use different slides to impress
them. Using the impact slides I showed earlier will
not help you as much as it will hurt your chances. They may consider you are simply BS’ing
them. Because you really haven’t yet accumulated
enough relevant experience. However, this is important, you have indeed
developed certain skillsets that you can definitely leverage in the interview. I suggest you develop a 1-slider, something
similar to this one. Because to develop skills, you don’t necessarily
need to have decades of experience. Again, I will put a download link in the description. Alright, so we covered the basics. Now, let’s take it even further. More advanced stuff. Shall we? If you are saying that “Deniz, I need to
go even extra mile. I need to just freaking rock that interview. What can I do?” Well, I have an answer for that too. First, if you like the video so far, please
do me a favor, give me a thumbsup and subscribe to my channel. Cool? Ok, let’s continue. I have 1 more great tip for you that I don’t
know if anyone else knows about or talks about at least. What it is, the unwritten requirements. This is important. Unwritten requirements are those that are
too long to list down in a job post. But they exist. They exist in the mind of the hiring manager. He knows them inside out. After all, imagine all the things you will
be doing in that job, all the tools and software you will be using. Would it be even remotely possible to list
in a job post? Impossible. Let’s look at the examples;
For example, – You may talk about your ability to use SalesForce. This would be really suitable for a role that
you know the company uses SalesForce. This is something again that will work great
with Hiring Manager. HR wouldn’t even know that the company uses
SalesForce. But Hiring manager will like the fact that
you are great at SalesForce – again assuming that they are using SalesForce
– Another one, for example, your expertise in using IFRS or local GAAP for an accounting
role. – Another one, MS projects or Primavera for
project management roles. – Or, Your knowledge in project management
framework from PMI or a project management methodology like Prince 2. Once more, mentioning these unwritten requirements
will really really work wonders with your hiring manager interview. But be strategic about this. If they ask, why should we hire you? Don’t go about it and say you should hire
me because I know how to use salesforce… Just make sure you mention them in your pitch. Remember it’s all about collecting points,
and increasing the likelihood of them liking you for that role. You gain a few points from here a few points
from there and that’s how you get the job. Before I conclude this video, I have to more
things. First, if you benefited from this video, could
you please give me a thumbs up. Also, this is a very new channel and I will
only put more videos if people subscribe. So, it will be a good indicator for me to
see if more people want to see these insider tips. So, please subscribe if you wanna see more
videos. Finally, I have one more awesomeness for you. I spent quite a long time preparing a free
3-day video training for you. This is where I teach how to prepare, pass,
and land interviews with multinational companies. Each video runs for about 30 minutes and they
are very comprehensive with life changing tips. I highly recommend you check it out at Landing
Interviews Guaranteed. See you next time.

  • I got a job in multinational company few days back. There were 3 rounds of interview. first with technical manager. Then it was with general manager sales and last one was with coo. And definitely i nailed pretty much of tricky parts of interview by help of your videos. Thank you so much

  • Deniz, you're the best, to be honest. Your videos are so beneficial and didactic. I don't even remember how times i watched. However, i couldn't find a good example of answer regarding the question. It was a little common. Once you're finalizing the videos a great sample of answers, it helps to digest with a better understanding what you've emphasized. Anyhow, million thanks to your effort for creating such a wonderful serious of videos.

  • Hell Deniz… I find your videos very interesting and useful. I would like you to kindly provide the link for the 3-day video training. Thanks in advance.

  • HI Deniz

    thanks for the pointers .

    pls advise or provide some pointers on a common question asked during the interview
    'Why are you leaving the current job? " how do we answer it professionally
    thanks

  • I've seen many of your videos and found them very useful. I believe many people fail to find their dream jobs not because of lack of experience and qualifications but due to lack information on how to comply with requirements of orgns they are looking for. Thanks Deniz!

  • Deniz Sasal you are an amazing mentor, I applied the things I learned from your videos in my interview and directly landed into a multinational company in first shot no second interview. Three words for you " You are Amazing" ….Beside that your videos has transformed me completely. Keep up the good work and Thank you sooo much

  • If you are programmer the best answer is " you should hire me because i hacked your company and invited my self to this interview. If you dont hire me, i will hack your company again and hire my self."

  • I have a question regarding my interview . I am doing my chartered accountancy in India.
    Last time I went to the interview they have rejected me because there are some commitment issues from my side, i said I might leave if i finish my chartered accountancy course.
    But, now I am going to the same interview this time and I have left my chartered accountancy course as I am not able to perform,
    What answer should I give if they ask me " what if you leave this organisation also when you are not able to perform well"….

  • Thank you very much. Very informative and I love the idea of having a presentation. I definitely learned a lot from your videos.

  • sir, u facts are very helping but please elaborate more about freshers because they are the one who face problems and therefore,recommend you to provide some hint answers.

  • Good job, keep making such beneficial videos. You really dont need to use music for a formal intro, simplicity is the key to elegant success!

  • I love this, it's so interesting but teach us about using or applying for a job with a cv of industry to a different industry, that is an electrical engineer cv applying for team leader post.

  • Hello Deniz. I am a teacher of English and I am helping one of my students to find a job taking into account his age and his abilities. I really love your tips and answers to this sometimes seen difficult questions. Thank you very much. I hope we can put them into practice.

  • You're great Deniz. I was very confident for today's interview and did very well by watching your videos. They did ask me about myself and why should they hire me.
    Thanks man 👏

  • There are numerous videos out there only telling things that should be avoided during a job interview. The difference with your videos is that first of all, you touch all categories(freshers, underemployed, unemployed and employed) and you always give a small example of how to frame what you are explaining. Great job!

  • I enjoyed your video, it was very informative! I noticed that you set up two category of experienced and new grads….I did want to ask about a candidate that is interested in a career change. How would address that category?

  • What if I answer like: you don't have to hire me. I can't tell you that. It is your decision. You will hire the candidate that you think suits you the most. If I am not the case, then it means that I need to work more on myself to become even better.

  • I am a job seeker and your points on nailing that interview are amazing .Ive really learny alot and now convinced of facing any interviewer with confidence.

  • I guess I botched the interviews I got earlier this year. Should have prepared more…I havent even been offered an interview from any of the internships I have applied to since, and that was in september

  • I have to say a huge thanks to you. If it wasn’t for your help, I wouldn’t have got the job. I’m so glad I watched your videos. Thank you.

  • Thanks for this and other videos as they are very informative. However, I do have two questions. First off, what would be the approach for those who are mid-level in their careers looking for a transition to a different career. For my situation, I have a background in engineering and energy research — but I am considering either business development (pending training), and/or product development. Lastly, do you help with more job "specific" related questions in your LIG program? I am well aware of the ten to fifteen most common interview questions (including the 64 Toughest Interview Questions PDF document). However, by looking at several of the questions for BDR, I find myself stumped.

  • THANK YOU!! I wish I found your videos a week ago as I had a job interview and "verbally barfed" on some of the questions (same questions that you have in your videos) and I never got the job. Might have another job interview coming up on Thursday so I will be better prepared. Feeling confident!!

  • Hello Deniz,
    Your videos helped me a lot. Thank you so much.
    I have a 2nd interview with hiring manager on 14th of may. 1st one was with HR. Any suggestion for me? It will be a great help.
    Thank you

  • Hi. I have a government interview and want to impress. Your videos have been helping me along very greatly. I love the originality.

  • Thanks for the tips!
    I am currently applying for a promotion. I just passed the initial interview with the HR. Now I'm scheduled for a final interview with the Operations Managers and client advisors.
    Do you have any tips for the "Next 100-Day plan" question?

  • Deniz, thank you for your dedication. Works like yours make people better and your talent to talk to us is a gift. After almost 10 years in the same industry, I´d just launched myself in a new challenge in a different country, culture and of course, a new job search and was very lucky for being placed after only 2 weeks, in a company that I´m sure I will devote myself. And after so many videos helping me out I feel like you deserve a BIG THANK YOU! 🙂

  • Dennis I've watched all your videos over and over again. I like the fact that you suggest a more realistic answers rather than bullshits. thumbs up!

  • Thank you for producing these series of videos. I like your presentation style. I'm a terrible salesman of my personal qualifications. I am generally afraid to appear arrogant or suffer from lack of confidence. I try to over deliver and underpromise.

  • Good presentation and encourage knowledge especial for the man like me who plan to meet with something like it soon.

  • "Maybe you're there to increase the problem" lol…well let's face it, once the problem is solved I may be out of a job so it would be in my best interests to increase the problem haha.

  • Thanks so much for your videos! They are very useful….just with this question I find it a bit confusing as it seems to cross over with "Tell me about yourself" as here you'll also want to show that you are suitable for the job requirements.

  • This is the best answer to the question "Why should I hire you?" Could you please make a video on another tricky question like "Give me a reason why I should NOT hire you?" Some people prefer to answer this like "I find no reason why you shouldn't hire me…" which seems to be a bit overconfident reply. On the other hand, being too honest may put us into problem. So, what should be the best answer according to you, especially for freshers.

  • I'm impres the way u taught the way teach….im a fresher n i really need all these tips of yours. Thank you for the video…. again I'm impress

  • Oh my, you good and When you come to the part where you mentioned my name ''Jane ''  because I thought this videos was so good for me just made for me  Before you mentioned my name ..

  • Deniz, this is incredible. I'll now prepare my slides and will apply them on my next interview – where I hope I will be invited shortly. Greatly appreciated!

  • Your videos were really helpful and helped me bag my dream job .
    I noticed you have a nice watch collection. Could you tell the different watches you own?

  • i feel like if i overprepare for the interview i will fail , would you recommend going in blind without doing any research ?

  • hi , i am very interesting in your lessons and i been following almost all, one thing i would like for you to talk about and here its," i dont know how to make fun at jobsite when ever i get to office, what can i do for others to like me, just i am? this my major weakness.

  • Your videos are great. Thank you so much for creating them. Very helpful. Where can I get a copy of the presentation you showed please?

  • Deniz first of all your content is brilliant and really useful. I’m wondering if you have a video on how to answer a situational question. Usually recommendation is to use STAR (situation, task, action, result) technique…but is it the best way? What’s your takeaway?

  • Please excuse me but Why should we hire you sounds like you want me to work for you but I am not interested to work for you but work with you. There is a big difference if you know and understand this. If you equally believe this, we are simply onboard for a fruitful long term association. Thks, Regards.

  • For people that english is there 2nd language as my self a job interview can be very very hard due to a lack of english

  • I have watched a few videos of yours sir. Its really good and it matches my thoughts even for what to be said at the interview but i m struggling in how to put up the right words. Can I have an help for this?
