What can I do to convince my interviewer that I want work at their company?

Answered by Jennifer, Hiring Expert at Archer Daniels Midland, on October 11, 2016

Good morning,

Thank you for the insightful question. When interviewing for a company that you really want to work at. I suggest that you research them. Know what the company does and key leaders and divisions within the company. Provide them with a great reason as to why the company interests you and what your goals would be if you were to work for them. i hope this information helps!.

HI,
The best way for you to show the interviewer that you want to work for their company is to be prepared for the interview, research the company, show enthusiasm in the interview, and finally ask questions. I know someone is interested in working for us by the questions they ask me, it shows they have thought about themselves employed with us. In all of my notes to hiring managers and debriefs I discuss how prepared the candidate was for the interview and how engaged they were with me. Good luck on your interviews.

Great question, and often not done. The best way to let an interviewer know that you want to work for that company is to tell them. It sounds very straight forward, but is often something overlooked by job seekers. By simply letting the interviewer know several times in the interviewer know and to also state it in your follow-up thank you note will be something to make you stand out. Make sure that your words are sincere and you will be sure to impress. I wish you all the best in your job search!

Everyone applying for the same job may say they want to work for the company, so standing out from the crowd is a good thing. Share with the interviewer how long you have admired the company or used their product/service and if you’ve been an ambassador for their product/service. Not only saying you like their product but demonstrating how you have promoted it will surely win you some points. Also, do your research about the company and be sure to provide informative responses (if applicable) regarding the company’s growth, trends, and status. Share information, have they expanded their footprint in a new market or launched a new product? Let them know you follow them in the news and in social media. Showing rather than telling the potential employer may give you that extra edge over your competition. Good luck!
