What made you decide to apply to Company ABC?
The hiring manager would like to know what attracted you to Company ABC and not just the posted job. Answering this question provides you the opportunity to show what you know about the Data Analytics industry and Company ABC's position in it. Through your answer, prove to the hiring manager you did your research carefully and know that Company ABC is the right company for you.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"Although my experience in the Data Analytics industry is limited, I know it is continuously growing and changing.

I found that Company ABC has proven to be a company that is a serious competitor in this industry."

Our industry is becoming increasingly saturated. How do you think Company ABC stands out from its competitors?
Your answer to this question should show your knowledge of both the Data Analytics industry and the specific services and products offered by Company ABC. When researching this industry, be sure to familiarize yourself with Company ABC's direct competitors and the products and services they provide. Be prepared with at least 2-3 points of differentiation to display your knowledge of Company ABC and the industry.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I believe customer service will always be a point of differentiation in a competitive industry such as Data Analytics. Based on my research, Company ABC prides itself in going above and beyond to understand its clients business and tailoring its products and services to meet their data analytics needs. Data analytics tools and solutions tend to be built as 'one-size-fits-all'. Many clients have unique requirements and Company ABC takes the necessary steps to understand and craft a solution for them. Not many companies would take the time to do so."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"From my observation, Company ABC seems to be a strong innovator in the Data Analytics industry. Being an innovative company, Company ABC stays a step ahead of its competitors and shows its understanding of industry trends and the client needs. Company ABC has established itself as a leader, instead of a follower, in the Data Analytics industry."

We take pride in our company culture. Which aspect of the Company ABC culture do you find most attractive?
The hiring manager wants to ensure you are a good fit with the company and its culture. Your answer can also be an indication of what you value most when considering your place of employment. At times it may be difficult to get a clear picture of a company's culture through its website. A thorough internet search may reveal some employee reviews of Company ABC. Also, utilize your network to gather details on Company ABC's company culture.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"The value Company ABC places on training and education was something that attracted me to the company. This offering indicates to me that Company ABC values its employees and understands that they play a key role in the success of the company. I believe when employees feel valued, they are more likely to remain loyal to a company."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I was pleasantly surprised by Company ABC's dedication to the community. By giving employees the opportunity to take time out of their workday to give back to the community, Company ABC shows that it respects the larger world we live in, beyond the company walls. Too many times companies are only concerned about profits. It's refreshing to see Company ABC encourage its employees to give their time to worthwhile causes. I believe it helps employees have a positive view of their job and their employer."

These skills will allow me to work with the client to solve any data analytics issues they may be having. Clients will appreciate thorough and efficient solutions that will not stall their abilities to conduct business and build strategies. This approach creates value for clients, making it difficult for them to look elsewhere for their data analytics needs."
Rachelle's Answer #2
