Quick English For IT Job Interviews: Why would you be a good fit for the team?

Common Job Interview Question: Why would you be a good fit for the team?

Response A: 
I noticed in the job description that you are looking for someone with data center experience. I have over 10 years of experience working in data centers but what sets me apart from other applicants is my ability to combine that with my communication skills. I really value effective communication and actively seek to establish good communication practices with different departments as well as my team. Doing so ensures the data center runs smoothly and that there are no misunderstandings.

Response B:  
It’s my understanding that your company places a high premium on being innovative and keeping up with new industry trends, technology and best practices. With over 8 years of experience working as a developer, I have learned the importance of being flexible and keeping up to date on new technology that directly impacts my work as a developer. Based on some of the qualifications you listed in your job description, I believe this is just what your team needs.
