A common interview question that can leave some candidates lost for words is 'why do you want this job?'. It might initially sound like a simple question to answer, but it can be easy to slip up. So, it's essential you can effectively communicate why you are interested in the role and why you chose to apply in the first place.
Interview prep is key to landing any job. As well as doing overall research on the company, the role itself and the wider team structure, we recommend prepping for common interview questions as well. The points below will help guide you in the right direction when preparing your answer to 'why do you want this job?' and a few of the key things you want to think about prior to your interview.
- Take a note of the company's values and mission statement and think about whether it is something you are or could be passionate about. When asked why you want the job, you can then talk about how you want to help them on their mission to achieve certain goals or that you are aligned with some of their core company values.
- If you have any industry specific knowledge that applies to this role, that can be a plus, but it's not a deal breaker. Think about any previous job roles or projects you have worked on that can still be related to this new role. Talk about specific examples of how you can help this company achieve their goals and highlight any relevant transferrable skills that will make you stand out as the right candidate.
- Write down any recent achievements you can talk about or any challenges you've faced recently that might be related to this new job. Think about how this will add value to the role, the team and the company that you're applying for.
- What made you want to send in your CV and application in the first place? This can be a great starting point for you if you are asked why you want the job. Think back to what initially excited you about the job description and how you felt when reading it for the first time.
