How to Answer

Your interviewer asks this question to assess whether you can fulfill new responsibilities in their organization and whether you fit in well with their culture. When formulating your response, align the responsibilities and opportunities at your current role with those of the role you're applying for. Assure your interviewer that you've done your research on the job and the culture by speaking about what makes you excited for the new job. No matter how you answer this question, be sure to speak with passion, as that will be one of the top qualities they will be looking for in the candidate that they hire.
