The #1 Question You Must Answer in Your Next Job Interview

Pinnacle All, Job Search Tips Leave a Comment

When it comes to preparing for job interview questions, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. As one of Winnipeg’s top employment agencies, we know that you never really know what questions you’re going to be asked. For instance, will you have a more traditional interview with straightforward questions, or will you be asked some out-of-the-box questions, like “if you were a car, what kind of car would you be?”

When you think about it, it’s really impossible to be prepared for every kind of question that comes your way…or is it?

We’re here to tell you that you can prepare for every question…if you think strategically. At the end of the interview, you need to have answered the #1 biggest, most pressing question every hiring manager wants to know – “why should we hire you?” – regardless if the interviewer came right out and asked this actual question.

And if you answer every interview question you are asked – from the classic questions to the crazy ones – without that end game in mind (why you are better, what unique value you bring to the table, etc.), you will offer much more effective answers as a result.

Spin-offs of the “why should we hire you?” question include questions about what you can do for the potential employer – e.g. “how can you help us increase sales, lower costs, build a stronger team and a better business?”

But the bottom line is that when you shift your focus from “it’s all about me” to “here’s what I can do for you,” your next job interview becomes much easier to prepare for.

And if you’d like some additional tips on preparing for job interviews or help finding job leads, let us know. As one of Winnipeg’s top employment agencies, we can help you locate top jobs that are a fit for your background and personality. Get started today.
