Interview question: How are you a greater choice than the other applicants that have applied? By Matthew Coppola


The employer will usually ask this kind of question near the end of an interview. 

The employer may be looking for you to sell yourself a bit more. They are looking for you to give them a good reason why they should hire you and not the other candidates.

An employer can ask you questions on why you are a better candidate in various ways.

You need to know what the ideal applicant for the position is and clearly comprehend the job and how you are the perfect candidate.

Don’t go over the top with your response. You most likely wont meet or know who the other applicants are.
