Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Nordstrom interview

Advice
Interviewers want to ensure you are placed into a job that you will enjoy. Now is the time to candidly share what your perfect fit is in the store! Start off by telling the interviewer that you will happily work in any department, but if you were able to choose a department, you would choose 'insert your desired department here.' This will show the interviewer that you are a team player willing to work in other areas to support the store, and it opens that door for the interviewer to place you where you want to be!
