What interests you about this job?

“What interests you about this job?”

Write up your answer to the question above (a paragraph or two), and share it with your Cambly tutor to refine your answer.

Tips on how to answer…

  • Explain your current position and/or your past experience, and why you’re interested in a new position
  • Talk about the importance of the role and how it aligns with your career interest.
  • Demonstrate that you have considered this is a job you’d be glad to do every day.
  • Be specific about the new challenges given at the new position

Sample Answer 1:

“I have been at my company for three years now and have learned a lot from working with some amazing salespeople.  I worked my way up to regional sales manager 18 months ago and my region has beat our sales projections by at least 25% each quarter since. However, I am starting to feel like I need some new challenges. This position really appeals to me because it would allow me to manage a bigger team and sell more innovative products.”

 

Sample Answer 2:

“I have loved my time at Acme Financial and am really proud of the successful marketing campaigns that I have conceived and managed. However, I think the time has come for a change. We are going through some management changes right now and a lot of projects are on hold. I have been thinking for a while that I’d like to work for a bigger company with more opportunities for growth. This position seems like a great fit because of my successful background in online marketing and my experience running a team.”
