15 Tricky Interview Questions and How to Answer Them

PoliceLink

8. Why should I hire you?



Bad answer:
“I’m the best candidate for the job.”

A good answer will reiterate your qualifications, and will highlight what makes you unique.

Good answer:
“I’ve been a law enforcement officer for the past five years – my chief has said time and time again that without me, the department wouldn’t function as well as it currently does. I’ve also taken the time to educate myself on some of the non-standard techniques that may come in handy while on duty. I can react quickly in hectic situations, and can handle the responsibilities of a leadership role. What’s good enough for most people is never really good enough for me.”

    Well first let me say this I'm a very tuff young lady. I don't take anything from anybody. I dislike criminals with a passion and I know what I'm capable of.
