Interviews are never fun. But there are questions that seem to put more pressure on you than others. Such as the question: "Why do you want to work with us?" With these tips you can easily give the perfect answer to this difficult question and impress your (hopefully) new employer.

1. Do research

The secret of the answer to the question "Why do you want to work for us?" lies in good preparation. Do research on the company and the person who will conduct the conversation, as well as their most recent work and larger projects that you may notice.

2. Remember facts and figures

Are there important facts and figures that you have been able to extract from the research? What impressed you the most? By sharing the facts you discovered during your research and at the same time showing enthusiasm for the organization and the sector, you leave a positive impression and you get a step closer to getting the job.

3. Indicate how the job can help you achieve your goals

The tricky question is easily answered by linking your career goals to what the position offers you. Make a list of your career goals, to compare them with the job description. Look for ways this job can help you reach your goals.

4. Share your passion

State the aspects of the company that appeal to you and that match your career goals. It is also important to explain what you are looking for in a job. The ability to connect with the vision of the company will show your passion.

5. Study the job description

There is a reason why you applied for the role, and this question is your chance to explain exactly what the reason is. The employer wants to be sure that, in addition to the knowledge about the company, you understand exactly what the job entails. Take the time to return to the job description and ask questions.
