Why are You the best person for the role?

To be successful, you need to be prepared.

Meaning: do your research. Find out as much as you can about the organisation you are applying too / having an interview with: it’s history, corporate culture, competitors, future plans.

Think about and plan for what kinds of interview questions might you be asked? What skills, experience and qualities can you bring to the role?

This will give you the confidence to clearly articulate why you are the best person for the Role. Not just verbally but through the non-verbal cues as well

Albert Mehrabian’s definitive study on verbal and non-verbal communication found that:

7% of communication is what you say: actual words

38% is how you say it: things like your tone of voice, rate of speech and volume

55% is non-verbal: all the other non-verbal cues and signals you give without saying anything such as general appearance, facial expressions, body language and gestures.
