I would say "I believe I would be a great asset to your company because I am *********** (look for adjectives here in line with the vision and mission of the company. For example, ' innovative', 'committed' etc.)

If it's for an entry position, I may continue like this: "I may not have the complete set of skills required but I am willing to learn. In short, I am here to do three things: Learn, work efficiently and enjoy myself. grin"

This may sound funny, but one of my friend was asked same questn in the last interview he attended... My friend said that he was silent for about 30secs after he was asked that questn cos he didnt knw what to say... The panel had to ask him again and this was his reply (nt d exact words)...
My frnd: Because I wont fail you
Interviewer: what do you mean you wont fail us
My Frnd: "i dnt want to strt tlkin abt my skills, qualification and what i can/cant do cos there are others who are better than me... But I believe that if given the opportunity coupled with my unemployemnt crisis in the last 9mnths, I will do all I can to perfect my effor in your firm...
According to my friend, they all busted out laffin... I even told him dat he blew up his chance by makin such statemnt...
Two weeks later, he was invited for medicals, but cos he was asthmatic, he didnt mk it as the nature of the work requires been exposed to dust/particles... Me thinks the success to interview is not necessarily about waht you say, but about your confidence and manner of approach...

After waiting for over two years without a job, I eventually got to the final stage of a Sale Dev. Rep job with Fan milk plc. The interview went like this:


Interviewer: why do you want to work with us?

Me: *I was thrown off balance by the question* errrrrrrrrm Sir because I have great passion for frozen youghurt.

Interviewer: *looking shocked too but not too impressed* what did you just say?? shocked

Me: Nigga I'm phucking broke, I need a job!! angry


Well you know the rest na, I was almost bundled out of the premise by their security men grin

What you should say - This is not only a fine opportunity, but this company is a place where my qualifications can make a difference. I see this position as made to order. It contains the challenge to keep me on my toes. That's the kind of job I like to anticipate every morning. grin

What you should never say - I really don't want the job but my parents are pressuring me to get any job so that I will not be a leech on them and to move out on my own. I'm only 41 - for real, they think I'm a kid! tongue

Funny enough I was at an oil and gas interview on Friday for an administrative job. I read computer science and I was being asked questions based on admin and oil&gas I just related the admin questions to database functions and administrator but I confessed about my ignorance when it got to oil&gas. I guess its just the idea and mode of interpretation of questions being asked that matters! BETTER TO "MERRY GO ROUND" THAN KEEP MUTE!
