Why should I hire you?

Believe it or not, this is a killer question because so many candidates are unprepared for it.  If you stammer or say something nonsense you risk losing the job.  If you know the duties and requirements of the position you applied, this question will give you a big leg up over other candidates because you will give interviewer better reasons for hiring you than anyone else.

Whether your interviewer asks you this question explicitly or not, this is the most important question you should ask yourself before applying for any job so that you are prepared with the right answer if the interviewer asks you this.  We all know that there will be other candidates who are also equally eligible for that position so answer carefully.
