  • Emphasize on your uniqueness but keep it concise
  • Highlight your strength, skills, and your accomplishments
  • Give an example that describes you as a quick learner
  • State or provide some evidence that shows how you contributed to the growth of the previous company in terms of revenue, goodwill, and brand
  • Include your research you made on the company- for a smaller company you can say- your company is open to new innovative ideas
What not to say
  • Try to avoid saying- I need a job, money or this place is close to where I live
  • Focus on what can you do for the company rather than what they can do for you
  • NEVER DO THIS- comparing your skills to others. The natural instinct to this question is we usually start comparing our skills to others, when this question is put through.
