Sales answer example
"I'm really excited to get into the startup space, since I've watched my husband and his company from the sidelines for years and the fun they get to have, while working their butts off, in a brand new company. In Chicago, there are tons of startups to choose from, and I'm really excited about your business specifically because I think you are disrupting an old, antiquated industry that needs to be changed. I have never been more excited than when I sat down to write my cover letter after I read about your CEO's story. I can't wait to be a difference maker here."
Retail answer example
"I have shopped here since I was a little girl. My grandma used to take me here and it's where I got all of my high school dance dresses, so to come full circle and work here in the very same department all these years later would be not only really exciting for me, but really special. I truly said that I would work here when I grew up, ever since I was in grade school. It took me longer than expected to make it back here, but I think that my path to get to this call has prepared me uniquely for the position and I know that I want it more than anyone else. Your store means something to me personally, and I would do everything in my power to make it successful and continue to make special memories for other children shopping with their family or for a high school dance."
Marketing answer example
"I have been a customer of yours for several years now, and targeted your company as a top prospect for which I hoped to work over a year ago. As soon as this position was posted, I knew it was right for me and would be the best next step in my career."
