MSN Careers - How to Answer: 'Why Should I Hire You?' - Career Advice Article
Why should I hire you. The answer to this question is what every student should have in mid during the college. All students (at least mine :-)) are great, smart, charming. But in the end those who have some skills that distinguishes them from their peers get the job.
