While a hiring manager is forming their own opinion of your fit for the job, they do want to hear other perspectives on it. They often learn some new information and things to think about. They are also looking for your desire to have this position.
Why should we hire you?
What you should know: In the course of your interview you should be asking them questions about the issues and challenges they face in the organization. This will position you to recap their issues and how you can solve those issues. Keep in mind; this is not about you it’s about what you can do for them.
Answer: As I understand it, some of your challenges you face right now are in the area of order cancelations due to lack of response. That can be a problem causing numerous business issues like gaps in your factory load or carrying unwanted inventory. I think you should hire me because I have solved this issue before and would be able to quickly make changes that would positively impact your bottom-line. This issue crosses many functional areas in your company and I have a proven track record of working with cross functional teams for mutual success. You will want someone who can pull together this kind of team, get them working creatively and without taking a body count. I can do that for you.
