Why do you want to work for our company?

TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"I've been longing to get into the tech startup space for quite a while. I have researched the many employer options in our city and chose to apply here because you are disrupting the market through your latest SaaS offering. I have spoken to a couple of your current employees, and they mention that the supportive culture here is top-notch, and that comes through very well in your brand story. For these reasons and many more, I believe that working here would be an incredible experience as I grow my career in tech."
Example #2
"Your company has an impressive reputation when it comes to developing new products and updating current products to remain competitive. I would be thrilled to learn from your leadership team and be in a support role to them. Also, your company is very involved in the community. I have seen your involvement in the form of warm clothing drives in the winter to benefit the homeless, to financing food programs for underprivileged school children. There are many reasons why I want to work here, but these are the most significant from my perspective."
Example #3
"I want to work for a medium-sized company with a family-like feel, just like yours. I have always worked in large corporate environments where I am a number, not an individual. This 'corporate giant' environment made it difficult for me to flourish as a manager and a leader. I appreciate the workplace culture you have cultivated and the fact that I could contribute to this industry in a more meaningful way."
Example #4
"One year ago, I decided to work towards a new position and began researching local marketing agencies that would be a good fit. Since then, I have had your agency on my short list and have been waiting for the right opportunity to become available. I am beyond excited about your Marketing Director position. I am ready to leverage my skills in digital and ad-based content in unique ways that will benefit your wide range of clients."
Example #5
"You are the undeniable giants in the industry, and I have been planning a career with your company since I started my BComm in Retail Management. Today, with a completed degree, I am educated and ready to accelerate my career in retail with your esteemed brand. There are so many growth and travel opportunities here, and that truly excites me."
Example #6
"I have been looking for an opportunity in a high-growth startup for quite some time. I see that your company values its people and that you have an awesome culture centered around achievement, growth, and accountability. The energy here is contagious, which makes me even more excited about the opportunity."
Example #7
"Your school district is one of the top-rated in the state of California when it comes to extracurricular opportunities for students. Also, your district focuses on immersing students in tech-based learning, which I believe is the cornerstone of modern education. This opportunity would be extraordinary for me as my passions in teaching include tech breakthroughs and learning through the joy of sport and teamwork. Here, I could build professionally, and this city would be an ideal place to call home for many years to come."
Example #8
"I'm really interested in working here because I really like the styles that you create. I also read that you focus on weddings, and I love to be a part of those lifelong memories. The bride is going to look at her wedding pictures five, ten years from now, and she'll be looking at the dress that we made for her, and I really cherish that."
Example #9
"I like that it is a family run practice. Your mission is focused on creating a balanced and healthy work environment that will allow me to have a flexible schedule and work in a fun, positive environment."
Example #10
"I want to work for your company because you have a strong reputation for valuing your employees. Your company is well known for being a leader in your industry and your level of employee retention is very impressive."
Example #11
"I am a passionate shopper of your store and an avid reader who loves to share that with others. As an inspiring writer, I would love to surround myself with up and coming authors and readers. As a customer, I believe in your store's values around customer care and the services you provide to the community."
Example #12
"I saw on your website that your company is participating in (X initiative). This is a great initiative contributing to the company morale by strengthening relationships while giving back to the community. I also always seek the opportunity to develop my team playing skills and hope to work with colleagues I will consider family."
Example #13
"The company I currently work with is a 3PL environment with our clients being some of the country's largest suppliers of home hardware and appliances. There are many benefits to hiring a third-party provider. For instance, we can handle the delivery schedules flawlessly, without the company needing to purchase a fleet of delivery trucks. I do understand that it is vital, as a third-party provider, to always deliver exceptional service to both the client and their customers."
Example #14
"I am impressed by your mission and I love how much of an impact you made on the local community."
Example #15
"I am not married and have no children at this time. So, I am pretty flexible with my schedule. If I had a choice, I would prefer the late shift, as I am a bit of a night owl. However, I am excited about the opportunity to become a part of this team and am willing to work where I'm needed."
Example #16
"I understand dangers such as a build-up of static electricity, fire, spillage, and more. Some things to remember are to avoid having the customer exit and re-enter their vehicle while fueling. Also, to never smoke near the pumps. Lastly, never overfill a tank. I have had formal safety training from my previous gas attendant role and am prepared to apply my knowledge to this position."
Example #17
"I have had my eye out for new opportunities at this center since my children attended your program five years ago. They were always so happy to attend preschool here, and I appreciated the high standards of care and the great level of organization that I witnessed here."
Example #18
"One of the reasons I would love to work for you is because numerous opportunities for growth are available at your company, such as (X past project/initiative/leadership position you saw on their website or social media pages). This project/initiative/leadership position particularly interests me because (X reasons why this project/initiative/leadership position seems so exciting, such as ability to develop management skills, and so on)."
Example #19
"Being a patient flow nurse, giving patients their discharge instructions is a big part of my job. Each time I am assisting with a patient discharge at the hospital, I review the written discharge instructions with both the patient and any family members or other advocates they have present. In these situations, I know, that most of the time, the patients are unable to understand and comprehend their aftercare instructions since they have been receiving inpatient care, so I ensure whoever is there with them fully understands the instructions. I do this because I know how important aftercare instructions are, especially when patients are taking medications and managing their ongoing conditions, and I want to be sure someone understands how they should be cared for."
Example #20
"There are several reasons I want to work for your organization. The first are some of the points I made earlier. Your industry leadership, use of cutting edge technologies, and the quality of the people who work here are very compelling. Another reason is I feel I can learn a lot from the other members of your networking team and advance my career within the organization. While I'm already qualified for the position we're discussing, my goal is to contribute to the organization's success, so I am recognized for my achievements and given the opportunity to work in more advanced and challenging positions."
Example #21
"I want to make a meaningful difference in the lives of young students in this local area. My long term career goal is to become a principal and I admire the work of the leadership in this organization. I grew up in this community and want to get involved in helping to shape the young children that make up our local area. Additionally, your school is reputable, highly credible and raved about by the members of the community. It would be an honor to be apart of what is happening here."
Example #22
"When I first read your job posting it attracted me because of the upbeat and fun environment you seem to enjoy. After going onto your website I saw that you have a great range of interesting clients such as XYZ Golf Course and ABC Regional Park. All of this seems very attractive to me."
Example #23
"I really want this job"
Example #24
"I am a very dedicated and loyal person in both my personal and work life. Your organization is based on going the extra mile for your clients, and with a smile! My work ethic is the same. I am friendly, compassionate, and come ready to work hard for my valued passengers every day."
Example #25
"Your laboratory serves a small population yet makes a big impact. I'd like to be part of a team that isn't made up of hundreds of employees but a smaller lab where I'd be able to be part of the action versus an assembly line situation."
Example #26
"While I was in school I had the opportunity to volunteer with your organization. I learned so much from you all that when a position came up I knew I wanted to work there and give back to other volunteers."
Example #27
"I have heard that your facility is a very safe, organized, and positive place to be. After meeting with you, I can definitely see these things to be true. I would be more than happy to be able to work here."
Example #28
"I want to do makeup in the fashion industry. Because you have such a great reputation and so much talent, I will be surrounding by people who can teach me and help me grow in my skills. I feel confident in my skills but I know I could learn so much from working with your team that would help me to move forward in my career."
Example #29
"Your organization has a reputation for providing amazing patient care. I have also heard great things from past employees. It's difficult to find a paramedic job somewhere that respects their employees and works with their schedules, so I was impressed by what I heard about you guys."
Example #30
"I want to be your Training and Development Manager for many reasons. The most personal and compelling are that your organization is top-rated in the USA when it comes to presenting ongoing learning opportunities for your employees. I have spent a lot of time researching and getting to know your organization. I found that your leaders focus on immersing employees in tech-based learning tools to keep them engaged in their roles and continue growing into new career opportunities. This partnership would be mutually beneficial, as my teaching passions include learning through the joy of growth and teamwork. I advocate for employee mental health, and I also believe that tech-based learning is the cornerstone of modern workplace education. Should you choose to hire me, I plan to contribute to your training program by being an active member of the work community. I will continue to build my knowledge of modern education and the tech-based learning tools that are so prominent in your organization."
Example #31
"I like that you are a family owned clinic. You have a great reputation among pet-owners and take such pride in the way you treat animals. I want to work alongside a vet I respect. All of those qualities make your clinic a place I would want to work."
