Compared to all of the other challenging brain teaser questions, this is the best one to use to your advantage—if you handle it the right way. At the most basic level, an employer seeks to learn about the job seeker’s motivation to interview for a specific job. The manager desires to investigate if the applicant truly desires this position. She also wants to determine if he is merely seeking out any old job, running away from a bad situation at his current employer, solely cares about the compensation or is selfishly desirous of the prestige associated with having the company’s name on his résumé and LinkedIn profile. When an interviewer asks why you would like this particular role, she is really saying, “Here’s your chance to sell me on why you’re the right person for this position.” By framing the question in this fashion, you now have an understanding of how to craft an answer. This is the time to mentally pull out your elevator pitch. You should share specific details of how your background, experience, talents, interests, education and other attributes make you a great fit for the job and asset to the company. Respond by adding that you will be intellectually challenged and afforded the opportunity to grow your career while creating value to the organization. Offer solid reasons why the company appeals to you, including the corporate culture, its reputation, the ability to advance and any other valid details as to why you would like to work there. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Myra noida, India 124 Questions 46 Answers 1 Best Answer 181 Points View Profile Myra Added an answer on April 27, 2020 at 10:58 pm Interviewers often ask this question as a way to determine whether or not you took time to research the company and to learn why you see yourself as a good fit. The best way to prepare for this question is to do your homework and learn about the products, services, mission, history and culture of this workplace. In your answer, mention the aspects of the company that appeal to you and align with your career goals. Explain why you’re looking for these things in an employer. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
