Why do you want to work for us?

Many interviewees fear this question. However, it’s not as difficult to navigate as you think!! Below is a fun approach to prepare, with a serious message!!! Take onboard these key points to ensure you ace this question at your next job interview.

IMPORTANT: It’s NOT a game of SCRABBLE. You don’t get extra points for big words

NB: Keep your answer succinct, and use simple language

IMPORTANT: It’s like a blind date. So, flattery will get you everywhere

NB: You are trying to impress!!

IMPORTANT: Be authentic. A ‘Google Search’ is no friend of authenticity

NB: Answers from the internet are bland

IMPORTANT: It’s not a lie detector test. That said, try to find honest and sincere reasons

NB: Pick real reasons e.g., specific elements of the job that attract you

IMPORTANT: Words without meaning. Come on, put a bit of passion into it!!

NB: Deliver this answer with energy and meaning!!

BE WARNED: This question is a hidden question to check your INTEREST

NO INTEREST = NO ‘FREE’ CANTEEN (that’s a call back)
