Why should our company employee you?
This is often the first question that is asked in an interview. The answer to this could be the one thing that decides if you get the job or not. It can probobly be considered the most important question a person answers so it is very important how they word it and what they say. It always suprises me how some people answer this all important question. Most people give the easy answer, they will name off all of their qualifications, experience and education. This is always amusing to me because what most people don't realise is, the interviwer allready recieved and read your resume, that's why they called you in for the interview, they liked what they read. Why would you name off everything the interviewer allready knows? Personally, I think the question should be answered with a simple question. Why shouldn't your company employee me? If you wan't to be the best person interviewed for the job, you have to believe that you are the best person for the job. If you let the interwiewer know that you are the best person to do the job, they will believe you, because they know from your resume what you can do. They are looking for someone who is self sufficiant not someone who want's to use the easy way out of everything. Tell them from square one that your are that person.
What do you have to offer that other applicants don't?
This is another common interview question. My answer is one that most people in the professional world do not have. I am very knolageable when it comes to the professional world. I understand how to opperate a buisness. I understand how finances work and how intrest is gained. I understand the stock market. I understand how to handle hectic situations. I have a checking account in my name and a debit card. You're probobly thinking that these things are not things that others can't offer, but there is one interesting thing about me that is a surprise. I am 14 years old. So if I can understand all of these things at only 14 years old, it's a wonder what I can come to learn. I have more time to learn that others yet I can still finction at the same calliber as them at such a young age.
