How to Answer

Recruiters and hiring managers often receive hundreds of applications per job. If you are lucky enough to land an interview, make some effort to research the opportunity. You don't need to be an expert, but you do need to be knowledgeable about the company before your interview.

Start by searching the company website and take particular note of any recent news articles, events or contributions they have made to the community. Identify their mission and values.
