10. What do you know about UnitedHealth Group and what have you learned so far in this interview?
How to Answer
UnitedHealth Group is a health and well-being company that offers two distinct businesses under their umbrella. First, UnitedHealthcare offers a full range of health insurance benefits. The second is Optum, which offers care aided by technology, data, and empowers people and providers with the guidance and tools they need to achieve optimum health. Being a company of more than 340,000 employees, the role that you are interviewing for likely works in one small corner of UnitedHealth Group's much larger business. In asking this question, your interviewer simply wants to know that you've done your homework on their organization. Prior to your interview, research UnitedHealth Group as much as you can so that you can speak knowledgeably and passionately about joining them.

"I studied your core values and found they greatly align with my own. I also love the fact you promote volunteerism within your employees- this is very important to me and I'm excited to learn even more about how to get involved. While I was very familiar with the UnitedHealthcare insurance package prior to applying, I didn't know much about Optum. As I applied, I was fascinated to read about the innovations you have brought in virtual care and prescription services to your members."
