"I did some research on your organization and I think it's inspirational that this company started 80 years ago as a mom and pop operation. I understand you now have fifty locations, which is really impressive growth. Also, I took a look at your blog and saw a posting about the trees you planted on Earth Day. I'm very passionate about the environment as well. As for the position, I like how the Marketing role is so diverse. The job posting said the incumbent would be working on presentations for clients, graphic design needs, writing copy for various elements, and data entry/admin tasks. I bring strong experience in all of these elements."
"You are the leader in your industry for delivering value to clients in professional services. This role supports the corporate team and their commercial planning groups with people development and product training."
"I know that you guys are an industry giant and leader, and that you're one of the big 3, as well as the oldest in the space. I also know that many people in my network have had really successful careers after having started here due to the vast network you provide and ample opportunities for growth and an entire career trajectory here. I'm really excited about the multiple paths and opportunities for advancement, along with ongoing education and mentorship. I think I would fit in really well here."
When the interviewer asks this question, they are trying to gauge how prepared you are, and your level of interest in the position. An employer wants to know you are enthusiastic about their organization. Express how keen you are by doing your research on the company history, values, goals, competition, and by examining their culture and what makes them unique. To really impress the interviewer, pay special attention to their blogs, events, and social media profiles for unique information that inspires you to work for them.
