For answering questions asking you to explain why you should be hired over all the rest of the candidates, the most important thing is to answer truthfully as it will be easy for interviewer to tell whether you are lying or not, because of your body language, emotional gestures, interactions and reactions, and verbal context and content.
For answering this type of question, just talk about yourself and explain why you want the job and what you can bring to the company. For example if you are applying for managing job, you could explain that you are interested because you are a very sociable person and like working with other people as a team and when you are talking about what you could bring to the company, you could explain that you have great leadership skills and that you are a hard worker and always work to deadlines. Also before your interview, research the company and highlight interesting points that you could relate yourself to, like that you have been on similar projects that the company you are applying for does and have gained useful experience and knowledge that you could use.

This sort of question is another way of asking 'do you have what we are looking for?', so it is testing whether you have the commitment, experience and knowledge to be a part of the company, therefore you should talk about your work history and what you have learnt and explaining how and why your experiences may come in useful. For example, you could say that by working in a team at your last job, you have gained confidence in speaking to others, you are good with making decisions and that you are open to ideas of others. However, if you have never had a job and this will be your first job, talk about the degree that you did at university and how it relates to the job you are applying for and you can also talk about your hobbies, such as sports and the skills that you have obtained, like concentrating on an aim and achieving it.
