Strategic Statement:

This used to be the “Why have you applied here/Why should we hire you/What are yours career aspirations?” question, and is now framed so that the interviewee can speak specifically about their abilities.

Sample Response:

I would not be here if I didn’t feel confident in my abilities. In addition, I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t feel that this were a position that could also keep me satisfied. My career aspirations are not only a reflection of those things that I feel I am capable of doing, but also those things that I enjoy. I am well aware of the nature of this position and feel that it is a very good fit for a person of my background, experience and qualifications.
