1. I’d like to explain why I am absolutely the best applicant you have seen yet.
2. I have been preparing my entire life for this job.
3. I think I know what your biggest problem is right this instant—and I know I can solve it.
4. It’s very nice to meet you. I am looking forward to learning more about ‘x’ directly from you.
5. Instead of asking me about my past jobs, let’s talk instead about how I would go about helping you, starting right now.
