The interviewer is looking for an idea of why this job will fulfill your needs as a recent entry into the job market. If you can think about the main tasks that piqued your interest when you first read the job description, then those aspects are most likely what you are most excited.
For instance, maybe the job posting says, “Must be excited about social media marketing.”
You could reply with: “I love using social media for personal marketing but haven’t had as much opportunity to do so in a professional setting. I seek to gain the professional training that you offer as well as the opportunity to be in a client-facing role."
"I aim to grow as an administrative professional while contributing meaningful work to an organization. My new education had me ready and prepared to make an impact in the workforce."
"I'm looking to start my career with an organization that will push me, stretch me, and teach me more about the industry and my leadership capabilities. I look forward to becoming more tech-savvy in the POS and inventory management systems you utilize. I look forward to becoming an effective team leader."
"I am strong in the areas of content writing and social media but have never been in a professional agency setting. I seek to move away from small customers as a freelancer, to a full out agency that can teach me their way. I know I am missing some considerable experience but my diligence and keen attitude will make up for my inexperience."
"I seek to land a customer service role that offers commission opportunities while allowing me to work around my University schedule. I am looking for a company with which I can grow, and I feel as though this is the best place for me in both the short and long-term."
"I am looking for a position that allows me to move into outside sales and with opportunity for growth into a territory manager position in the next three years. I am longing for a young company that believes in rewarding high performing employees and wants to invest in its talent."
"As a recent graduate of the Bachelor of Education program, I am looking for a school with a faculty that will help me to mold a successful teaching career. I understand that your school is well known for nurturing future talent in the education system which excites me."
