This happened last Monday. I was interviewing for a Financial & Risk Advisory position at one of the big 4 Accounting firms. Everything went well but I messed it up at the very last question of the final interview after almost 12 hours of process which was "what makes you the best fit for this role?"
I was under the impression that the job was boring and may be I could find a better job. But the thing is no matter what the compensation was best. I answered how my skills matches to the role but in the end I answered unconfidently saying ".....I am not sure whether I am best fit for this role, but I will give my best to learn". After which the interviewer just ended the interview.
Now I regret as I come from a third world country and from lower middle class. This was one of the worst mistake I could've made.
For future interview should I be overconfident and possibly lie when answering this question, as I am fresher I may not have full insight about the role. Also I did my homework about the researching about the company and role it's just that I wasn't confident.
I am confused because I was later advised by one of my friends that they want the lie answers (for whatever reasons) so sound like you know stuff (especially for big companies) about the company, ask question about your workplace, show interest and at least feign your competence.
