Why Do You Want to Work in Our Company?


All of us have some preferences. When it comes to choosing the right place of work, however, we typically do not think much. We simply try to use every opportunity that the market offers, submitting many job applications, hoping for the best. Nearly everybody does the same thing, so there’s no reason to feel ashamed.

But recruiters want to employ people who care for the company, for the particular employer.

Proud people

Interviewers (or employers in general) often think that their company is the best one out there. While this can be far from the truth, you should support their opinion in an interview. You need to show them that they are not only another employer on your long list of applications. Show them that they are special. The following answers will give you a good idea on how to achieve that.

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 this nowadays. I would be proud to work here, knowing that I participate on something good, and something big.

I have researched a lot about your company before this meeting. You have a great reputation, and your reward program really stands out. That’s why I want to work for you, and not somewhere else.

Remember: Compliment them for something – for their goals, vision, philosophy, working environment, or anything else you like, or other people like (if you can’t find anything on your own).
