How Do You Answer an Interview Question About Why You Want to Work for a Company?

There are many acceptable answers to an interview question about a person's desire to work for that company, so long as the answer is intelligent and thoughtful. What is not acceptable is spouting off an answer about the pay or benefits as this lets the interviewer know that the individual is only interested in money and will jump ship at the next best offer.

Some go-to answers that usually work, so long as the answers are truthful to the individual using them, include recommendations from current employees, positive employee feedback on websites and social media and being a fan of the products or services the company provides. The interviewer may request more details, so have an answer ready for that, as well.
