      Pro Tip

      Before your interview, take some time to learn more about the company's business principles, values, mission, and goals. These statements and principles will outline what makes the company an exciting potential employer. If available, you can also visit the news page or resources page from the company's website to read more about what efforts the organization has been recognized for recently or any awards the company has received.

      Avoid giving a general response that fits any company. Instead, ensure that the details of your response are highly specific to the company interviewing you.

      How to Answer

      There are many places you could work, and the hiring company wants to know why they are the stand-out employer for you. Genuinely consider why you want to work for this organization over one of its competitors. Then, take the time to carve out a unique reason that reaches beyond the surface. A surface reason would be because you know someone who works there. A compelling reason is that the company's business principles or mission resonate deeply with you.

      What You Need to Know

      The average HireVue interview takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. This one-way video interview typically includes 3-5 questions. Depending on the hiring company's parameters, the HireVue platform will generally give you 30 seconds to prepare a response and up to 2 minutes to answer each question. It's important to note that HireVue stops recording as soon as your time limit is up, so it's better to run under time than overtime.
