Why Do You Want to Work in Our Company?


All of us have some preferences. When it comes to choosing the place of work, we typically do not think much though. We simply try to use every opportunity… Said in other words, we submit couple of job applications and hope for the best. Nearly everybody does the same after all…


However, employers do not want to employ someone who submits hundreds of applications and never thinks about the opportunity and the company. They expect you to have a reason for your “choice”.

Recruiters are proud

Interviewers (or employers in general) always think that their company is the best one, unique, a great place of work, anything you imagine…

Needles to say, this can be far from truth. But while you are interviewed there, you need to support their opinions! You need to show them that they are not only another potential employer on your long list of companies, but represent something special to you. Let me show you some good sample answers to convince them about your “honest interest” in their company.

Sample answers

Your company is a leader on a local retail market. On the top of that, I really like your vision and working environment, especially the ecological aspect of your production. There aren’t many companies that pay attention to it. Therefore I will be proud to work here and will know that I participate on something good.

I have researched a lot about your company. I really like the working environment, as well as your reward policy. I believe I can fit here well. That’s why I want to work for you and not somewhere else. On the top of that, cars are my hobby, so it’s an ideal industry for me.

Remember: It’s quite easy. Compliment them for something – their goals, vision, philosophy, working environment, or anything else you like… That’s the best way to build a good relationship with the recruiters and strengthen your chances to succeed.
