    Do some research in to the company, find out their values, philosophy etc. Then say you would be a good organisational fit because you are ... (insert quality). Make it fit within their values. Outline the reasons why you would fit well within the organisation and why you are the best candidate for the job - be confident! No one else will speak up for you, so be boastful about your best qualities.
