How To Answer, “Are You A Great Match For This Role?”

There’s a simple process anyone can go through to answer this common interview question. So you, too, can learn the secret of how to respond, “Are you a great match for this role?”

Memorizing your answers to the most common interview isn’t a good idea. It will get you into trouble quickly because it doesn’t consider that different people will ask you this question.

Do Your Research

It’s not enough to just think of your strengths and weaknesses. To answer this question well, the key to any successful interview is methodical research.

Know Yourself

For every responsibility listed on the job description, ensure you have relevant details of either prior experience or adjacent experiences which taught you similar skills.

Crafting Your Answer

You should by now have plenty of information about both the job and company and many ways to tie them  to yourself.

Be Honest

A good answer needs to impress and help sell yourself and be honest. Don’t be tempted to embellish the truth for your response.

Don’t Over Practice

Answering mock questions too much will make them sound stiff and rehearsed. To stand out, you also need to sound natural.
