Why You Want to Work With Us? Answering the Typical Interview Question

There are two wide angles of this question:

Why are you interested in this company?
How you describe your interest in the job?
When an interviewer asks you- “Why you want to work with us?” that means he wants to collect information as:
• Get some details about your goals related to career and what you think about current job profile being offered to you.
• Ensure that you are highly interested in this particular job and will show dedication in your work if they hire you.
• Your research work about the company, position or industry will reflect here.
• They need to understand your viewpoints about preferences and priorities as it will have direct impact on your performance.
Note that, every part of this question must be answered with different approach even for Part time jobs.

The interview panel is looking forward for a candidate who can fit perfectly in their work environment and will enjoy working with them. Your homework will reflect the best answer here and you need to specify few unique reasons about why you want to join this firm.

Some of the best reasons to explain are:
ü General reputation of company
ü Reputation of the key leaders
ü Little admiration of their services and products
ü Admire few major initiatives of company like training programs, community involvement and marketing campaign.
ü Awards offers by company to its employees
ü Management philosophy of company
ü Core values of company
ü Position of company in market
ü Growth and success rate

Here are few common mistakes that you need to avoid while answering this question:

Never give a general answer that can be applied to any other company commonly.
Avoid answer that reflects your zero research about the company.
An unenthusiastic answer can also force the interviewer to avoid you from hiring. Show little excitement about this job profile and the idea of joining that particular company.
