  • The best way to answer such questions is:
    1) Try to maintain an eye-to-eye contact while answering.
    2) Look confident. Your face should have no signs of negation.
    3) Reply about your efficiency and experience related to the eligibility criteria and never forget to add "May I" instead of "Can I" or so while cross questioning and requesting the employers about any issue regarding the advertise of employment or like that.
    4) At the completion of your answer, be confident and wait for the reply. Don't be oversmart to judge yourself and ask like "Am I successful and found eligible, Sir?"

  • To answer tricky questions one needs to be confident. Always remember the interviewer doesn't know anything about you. And he wants to know from you so don't panic instead calm down focus on intonation and articulation. Tell whatever comes in your mind but beware only answer what has been asked. Keep a pleasant smile while answering. Feel free while answering.
    If you are tensed and out of words don't show it instead show him that you are confident and knowledgeable because if you panic and become of words it will impact negatively and the interviewer will loose confidence in you. If the interviewer ask the question "Why should we hire you?" answer him in the way that I can be proof as an effective and efficient assert in your company. I am hardworking, talented and a quick learner.

  • You can try to answer casually, it is not sure that you will be getting selected or not though you no need to loose your confidence upon interview. So, be very casual and show little seriousness. That's it, you will show them that you are very confident for what you replied.

    You need to be ready to face any tricky question. As you said above, you can reply that "I am the suitable person for your organization". It may look funny but maximum possible for success as you are showing your confidence.

    They may ask you even more tricky question (not in all organization but few) like what is your plus points and negative points, which post you will be in after three years and so on. Be prepared.
