Why Should I Hire You – The Beginners’ Lesson

Why should I hire you

Still stressing about the job interview which is due? Well, to be honest, almost everyone does! It doesn’t really matter whether you are a pro or a fresh grad; the stress prior to an interview is something we all go through. If you want answers to questions like, “why should we not hire you?” my first suggestion would be to read this expert guide right away. This has been brilliantly penned by Deniz as he shares his valuable insights regarding how to stand out from the league and get selected.

Can I Assure My Selection?

Of course, no! Who do you think we are? Magicians that have been blessed with Harry Potter wand!

No one can guarantee you a selection in your interview, but of course, we can maximize your chances. It is better to be prepared for the interview and get shortlisted rather than twiddling your thumbs and waiting for a miracle that will never happen!

The Beginners’ Tips

When you are a fresh university graduate with absolutely no experience, the entry is ridiculously tough. If you have some experienced pros battling for the same spot, the job at hand gets downright challenging. However, does this mean you should quit before you being? Hell, no!

Make PowerPoint Presentation Your Best Friend

This is crucial. When you are looking to grab the job you badly want, you have to put in a powerful impression and PowerPoint presentation could turn out to be your best friend.

So, you need to spend an hour thinking of how you could possibly show your interviewer as to why you are the best applicant he has interviewed all day long.

  • Do not make long and boring slides. People are there to interview you and not to see you go on an hour long lecture on what makes you the best. So, keep it short and succinct.
  • Your slides should NOT contain the same thing which you have already told. They need to be different. They should add value to your skills.
  • Ideally, your slide should illustrate how you can be a valuable asset to your organization. You can rank your skills and justify some of them.
  • Do not blow your own trumpet. Do not rate yourself too highly. Ideally, the presentation should look real and too fake.
  • Do not use a generalized template. Customize it for the job you are seeking. This slight extra effort often ends up making the difference.

Now that you know the details, you can once again check out the expert guide by Deniz. He knows it right when he talks about ‘why should we hire you – mind game’.  He is the creator of The Career Mastery and works with PwC Consulting.

When you know what can get you hired, it should be a little easier to prepare for the interview, isn’t it?

All the best!
