  1. 1.

    Would this job give you the opportunity to do what you do best, every day?

      How to Answer

      This query can uncover if this is the best job for you, at this time in your career. People change jobs for a wide variety of reasons, and it's essential to the interviewer that this move would be a long term fit versus a short blip on your resume. This question also shows how much research you have done on the role and your understanding of the position. Other ways of asking this question could include 'What is your interest in applying for this role?' and 'Why is this job a good fit for you at this point in your career?' Be honest with the interviewer about the ways that this job will fulfill you. Name specific tasks and responsibilities that you look forward to performing, and also which parts of the role will be an exciting challenge for you.

      "Yes! The companies values reflect my own. I have been successful with my customers by being a human being, listening to their needs, and providing them the value that they seek to help support their patients. I could do this every day until I retire knowing I am helping someone improve their quality of life."
