Hello and welcome back I’m Aakash and you are watching Learnex
Are you going for a job interview?
Or soon your job interview is going to come
and that's why you clicked on this video and you are thinking that
in a job interview what questions
can the interviewer ask me
Now there is no way to find that out
Unless and until have any of your friends
has gone for the same interview
and he will tell you that all these questions will be asked.
But there is no guarantee that
the same questions will be asked by the interviewer.
Look there are some
common questions in a job interview
which the interviewer generally asks, for example, “tell me something about yourself”
and this is usually the first question
of a job interview
But today we are not talking about
this question. On this, I have already
made a video. You will find
the link somewhere here or
down in the description, you must watch that video.
Today we are going to talk
about an important job interview question and this
may be your second question for
any job interview, this is a very important question.
“Why do you want to work here?”
‘Why do you want to work here
in this company?
Or this may be asked in a different way
“Why should we hire you?” which means
‘what is so special about you
that can make us appoint you for this job?”
or you may be asked,
“What interests you about this job role?”
‘What you find interesting in this role
that you have applied for this job?”
More or less all three questions mean the same,
but the ways of asking
it is different. So whenever,
you are preparing for these questions,
you need to keep some things
At the end of this video I shall give you some sample answers
but before that we need to understand that
why this question is asked?
while answering, this what all things you need to keep in mind
what all things you should never say
so like I said, it is important question
and most of the candidates
do not pay any attention in preparing this question.
They just prepare for “Tell me something about yourself”
or “How to negotiate the salary” these kind of questions.
But this question
can make or break your interview.
After your answer to this question,
the interviewer will decide whether to offer you
the job or to reject you.
So as I told you earlier, let’s first understand why this question is asked
In short the interviewer wants to know that
if he hires you then for
how many days or
for how many months you will survive
this he wants to make sure
He wants to know that you really
have any knowledge about the Company?
Or you just walked-in for the interview.
Or he wants to know, do you understand
the challenges about the job role?
He just want to make sure that
you are the right candidate for the job or no.
Are you the perfect fit for the position,
this is what he wants to know through this question
While answering this question
what you shouldn’t say,
“My friend works here
and this is a very good company, that’s why
I would like to work here”, or
“I want to work here because
you give good Diwali Bonus”, or
“My girlfriend /wife
works here and we can commute together”
or “The company pays 20 days paid holiday”,
that’s why, or “here we get free coffee and food,
that’s why I want to work here.”
These all things could be possible,
that’s what you wish to work here
but while answering
you should never mention any of these things
If you said any of these things,
the interviewer would clearly understand
that you are not at all serious about this job,
you are not serious about your career
and the interview will end then and there
So friends let’s now understand
how to prepare for this question.
Firstly, know about the
company’s products and services.
It is important to know what
the company specializes in.
For example, HDFC Bank,
it’s in banking, but apart from
banking what are the products and services,
what is the specialization of this bank,
this you need to have an idea about.
What is the company history?
How did the company grow in the market,
this information you should be handy with.
What do you like the most
about the company?
As I mentioned HDFC Bank,
so you can say, HDFC is the safest bank in Asia,
this is the specialty of the company.
You need to tell them,
“How do you see your career growing in the company”.
In short what you need to do is,
your answer should align with
how fit you are for this job.
You need to tell them that more than
75% of your skills match the job requirement.
So whenever you are preparing for the answer
you need to keep these important points in mind.
So friends now I shall give you some sample answers, the first one
is for a fresher, how to answer if you are a fresher,
“I first found your company several years ago
when I was in college and I was inspired.”
“The way you market yourself
to younger audience, I can relate to.”
“I have been following your job opening
since my last year in college, and
I always wanted to join your excellent team”
“I am now ready to join your team,
and use my skills and learn
from your talented team.”
“I’ve also heard that your company has allocated education fund
for young graduates to study further
It would be a great opportunity for me to study further and work here."
So what you are conveying with these answers,
you said, you know about the company
and you are following the company for a long time.
You know about the products and services of the company.
You are impressed, how the company
connects with the young crowd
You also said, you are open
to work in a team,
and the most interesting thing that
you are interested in the education fund
that the company has allotted for young graduates.
So these points are enough
to impress an interviewer.
Now friends let’s look at sample answer – 2.
“To be honest, before I applied for this opportunity,
I must admit that I didn’t know
much about your company
But then I did some research about your company
and need to say that I’m impressed by your work
in this field.”
I’m interested in getting more involved
in the marketing side as I read
that the market for your products and services
you and answer like this if you are an experienced candidate
but if you are a fresher you can say, “As a fresher
in this field, I am ready to learn and grow. I know
I can bring a lot of value to the team and
would be a great team player.”
Now what have you covered in this answers,
you have shown your honesty.
Sometimes speaking the truth
is very beneficial
You said, you had no knowledge about the company
but you put in some efforts to know about the company,
this is how you can answer with honesty.
This will definitely impress the interviewer.
So friends let’s look at some sample answers related to IT field,
you can say, “I know about your software
for many years and I am impressed
with the innovation your company had made in the industry.”
“I would love to be a part
of this innovative team
and use my programming skills to help the company
innovate and bring fresh ideas to the table.”
‘To bring fresh ideas to the table’ means
to present a new idea.
With this answer
you are telling the interviewer,
that you have a good knowledge about their software products and services.
You believe in their products,
you also said,
how the company will grow with your new ideas.
This answer will surely impress the interviewer.
