How would you explain why are you the best person for a job?

A very common question that most of the job seeker faces in the interview board that is “Why are you the best person for the job?”. Freelancers face this type of questions while they are in an interview with a new potential client.

Through this question the job provider wants to be assured that you have sufficient knowledge about their task. So, when you face a job interview, you have to have the answers to questions that you can reasonably anticipate.
