During a job interview, you may be caught off-guard if you’re asked, “Why do you want to work here?” After all, you’ve taken the time to apply and come in for an interview—isn’t your interest obvious? But it’s highly likely you’re going to come across this question at some point in your interview.

Show that you’ve done your research
Ideally, you researched the company even before you applied, or at least before the interview, and now is the time to call upon what you learned. By reviewing the company’s website and social media accounts and reading news articles about the firm, you’ll be able to draw conclusions about the value you can bring to the position, whether it’s because the company’s mission matches yours, its culture is a good fit or you have a skill that the company needs.
TouchSuite always provides as much transparency as possible to the industry, affiliates and everyone associated with the business: agents, partners and employees. With regular meetings amongst departments, bimonthly company-wide meetings and daily executive huddles, TouchSuite is always looking for ways to keep an open and honest communication. Our team-focused attitude helps drive TouchSuite to be a constant top producer in the processing sector and has earned many prestigious rewards along the way.

Keep the focus on the employer
You may think this question is all about you, but like other questions in your job interview, it’s still really about what you can do for the employer. Most candidates fall into answers related to culture or a lifelong dream to do this work. Drill down on a key skill or deliverable that the employer needs and that you love to do. Tell the employer what your traits are and what can be brought to the table.
Forward-thinking individuals is what TouchSuite is all about. After all, we are a team that has each other’s backs. Check out some of our team members on our website: touchsuite.com/about-us/meet-our-team.
