How to Answer: Why Do You Think You Are a Good Fit For This Job?

Here are three easy steps to nailing the common interview question, “why do you think you are a good fit for this job”? Good luck and have fun preparing!

1. Experience

The first step when answering this question is to explain your experience and tell your interviewer how your previous opportunities have prepared you for this position. Try to give specific and detailed examples of situations you have handled or problems you have solved in the past. Speak about how these experiences have shaped you into the perfect candidate.

Your past experiences, no matter what they are, will have given you insight and skills to be able to be successful in this new position. Don’t be shy, and help the interviewer understand why you’re going to be a good fit for this job!

2. Passion

If you are applying for a new job, this most likely means that the job posting sparked a passion for you! Talk about how you became passionate about your career and how this new position will support your creativity.

An interviewer wants to know that this won’t just be a job for you. They want to know that you have the motivation to be successful in the role. So make sure you talk about what passions drive you, and will motivate you in this role.

3. Learning

Last, but certainly not least, explain what you hope to learn from the new job that you are applying for. Talk about how having this experience will foster your growth and shape you into the best version of yourself.

Employers love to hear that a candidate is willing to learn new things. So when you are feeling like you may not have ALL of the skills necessary to be successful, talk about how excited you are to learn them!
