Why Do You Want This Job?
Research performed on the company or non-profit organization before the interview provides the answer to the question, “Why do you want this job.” The key is to promote the virtues of the company, as well as describe how your unique skills and personality traits make the perfect match for achieving company goals. Never mention money in an interview, especially in response to this question. “Because I hear you pay well” is your quick ticket out of the interview. Job interviewers typically ask this question towards the end of an interview, which makes this question the last chance for you to sell yourself to the interviewer.
