My friend on the executive board said you give great bonuses!
You can find out a lot about the culture of a company before the interview. If you feel the culture aligns well with your own preferences and abilities, make it clear in the interview. A too-general answer that could apply to any company. Most of my interview coaching clients make this mistake.
An unenthusiastic answer that makes the interviewer wonder if you really want the job. You want to convince the interviewer that you are excited about the idea of working for his company.
Also, a good friend of the family has been working in corporate finance at JP Morgan for the last two years and he told me that the culture supports learning and development on the job — and really rewards hard work.
In this case, the candidate is interviewing for a very well-known firm. She also singles out the bit from the article about innovation and articulates that this is a shared value. A little flattery can be effective — just be careful not to cross the line into pathetic kissing up.
You must also be prepared to speak about the position. What is appealing about this job? Why did you respond to this job description? You must be able to discuss what excites you about the work. After all, every manager wants to hire someone who will love the work required and be committed to doing a great job.
Companies like to hire people who will be good at the job — and enjoy what they do. Clearly communicate both your interest and ability. A too-general answer that could apply to any position. I often compare job interviewing to dating hopefully, dating is at least a little bit more fun for you.
You have to woo the company and talk about why the position was made for you. You want to give some detail about why you would enjoy the work and how the job fits into your goals.
This is particularly important if the job represents even a slight career shift or a step up to more responsibility. Also, the role excites me because I love the idea of helping to develop cutting-edge software products and I know I could start delivering results from Day 1. This answer manages to sell the candidate while addressing what she likes about the job.
She leads with the fact that her experience makes her a great fit for the job requirements.
She continues by stating that the role excites her. And finally, our candidate wraps by promising that she can deliver results immediately."Why are you interested in this job?" With the right answer, seal the deal and show the hiring manager that you're the perfect candidate for this position. I am interested in this job because my competencies match exactly to the job description, including sales and marketing.
As I mentioned earlier, in my previous role in a flat industry, I was capable of creating an annual growth rate of 22%. Like the dreaded “Tell me about yourself,” the question, “Why are you interested in this position?” is sure to come up in an interview.
And, even if it doesn’t, if you want the job you should get this sentiment across regardless. Needless to say that like every other question asked during an interview, a person can get the perfect answer by asking himself (herself) the question ‘why am I interested in this position?’ Once the person has the true answer to the question, he is better equipped to answer the question.
I am a team player and also work great individually.
I work hard at everything I do and know how to follow the rules. Why are you interested in this position? You need to let this company know why they want YOU for the position. When they ask why you are interested in them, you need to phrase it in such a way that actually makes them.
While the interviewer wants to know why you are attracted to the job, he’ll be even more interested in hearing about why your experience has prepared you to excel in the position.
Bottom line: Companies like to hire people who will be good at the job – and enjoy what they do. Clearly communicate both your interest and ability.
