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.
