Curtis Peterson was recently interviewing for a digital marketing manager position at SmartFile, an Indianapolis company that provides secure file sharing services, when his interviewer asked him what he knew was a make-or-break question: ‘Why do you want this job?”

Here’s how Peterson responded:

“I want this job because I've always loved building and marketing websites—even as a kid. I built websites when they were using frames and AltaVista was a decent search engine. I was 10 or 11. I've always been passionate about digital marketing, but I just didn't know I could make a career out of trying to get people to a website.”

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.

Interviewers like to ask this question to see if you’ve done your homework, says Jennifer Malach, founder of 20/20 Career Solutions in New York City. read more

Lynda Spiegel, founder of New York City-based Rising Star Resumes, once was asked by a job candidate to prioritize the projects that would be assigned to the role in question. The candidate, who was interviewing for a junior marketing position, then offered insights into how she'd address each project in stages to avoid lag times.

“Her discussion showed she had done her research and knew what our resources were as well as our strengths and weaknesses,” Spiegel says. “Candidates who've made a point of investigating a prospective employer's projects and programs and can speak to how they'd contribute show me that they're thinking like one of us.”

It’s always important to be honest in a job interview, but no question will cause you to stretch the truth as much as this one:

“Why do you want to change jobs?”

Tempting as it may be to spill about your horrible boss or the long hours you work, you've got to keep your lip zipped on the “real” reasons. Otherwise, you could blow your chances at the job by looking like a complainer—and god forbid if your interviewer actually knows your boss somehow without your realizing it.

Your resume and cover letter have successfully outlined your qualifications. You’re selling all the reasons you’re the right person for the job in the interview. When the interviewer says, “Give me an example of a time you did something wrong, and how you handled it?”

You freeze.

No one wants to talk about their screw-ups, but doing so with confidence and answering this question well can prove crucial if you want the job.. When interviewers ask this question they’re trying to evaluate how you handled a bad situation, says Corey Listar, 44, staffing operations manager for Atlanta-based building materials manufacturer Oldcastle.

When a job interviewer asks, “What is your ideal company?” you may think to yourself, “Hmm, one that pays six figures, offers unlimited vacation and has a four-day workweek.”

But while that may be your fantasy, you need to remember that the hiring manager is looking for an answer that’s more grounded in reality.

“They are interested in finding a match for the position and the company,” says Michele Jennae, executive career coach and owner of Perpetual Career Management in Sacramento, California. “A match doesn’t just consist of qualifications, but motivation, attitude, potential, culture and more.”

When an interviewer asks you, “Where would you like to be in your career five years from now?” he or she is testing your level of ambition. Joseph Wessner, assistant general manager of Coughlin Printing Group in Watertown, New York, says despite its ambiguity, this question, when asked, does have a definitive answer.

“I can tell by your resume and cover letter if you have the skills and education necessary to fill the position, that is why I am talking to you,” he says. “What I need to know is do you fit in with our company’s team, vision and culture?”

These guidelines will help you develop a winning answer to this common job interview question. read more

It’s common to discuss your work history and experience in an interview, but some employers want more detail than others. In particular, some may ask you to dig into the last project you led.

There are many things interviewers might gauge from your response to this question. “The interviewer may want to know if you were able to collaborate with and lead a team,” says Jennifer Malach, founder of 20/20 Career Solutions, a career and leadership coaching business in Westchester, New York. “Or, was there a major client issue that you resolved without specific direction or much information from others?”

Whether your previous boss was your best friend or your worst enemy, talking about him or her to a prospective employer takes a little tact.

“How you describe past relationships speaks volumes about you, not the boss, which is why interviewers pose the question,” says Elaine Stirling, a Toronto-based communications consultant and author of The Corporate Storyteller: A Writing Manual & Style Guide for the Brave New Business Leader.
