How to answer: why do you want to work for us?

What do they mean by “why do you want to work for us” in an interview?

It’s not a trick question and they’re not trying to trip you up. They want to know if you are just there for the pay and because it’s a job or if you are going to become invested in and integral to the company.

You need to use your answer to show them you want to become a part of the team/family. So how can you make sure you impress in your answer?

Use your research

Research the company to get a good understanding of the company needs and talk about how passionate you are to help them achieve their goals.

Use compliments

Everyone loves a compliment. You could discuss a project or achievement and why you would love to be a part of the next one.

Use examples 

Choose examples of how your skills and experience align with the company needs and values.
