Don’t think about yourself during an interview
At some point during every interview, the interviewer asks, “So why do you want to join us?” or words to that effect.
Viewed from this perspective, candidates should be authentic and put their ego aside to express an interest in their possible future employer. Setting aside narrow self-interest to put the company’s goals front and center is a much more sympathetic approach than acting self-centered. Your standing improves when you can produce detailed knowledge showing that you have done your homework about your future employer. Your future boss or manager can see your motivation and ability to prepare from these signs.
A good answer when asked why you want to join a particular company might be: “Your company is a recognized market leader. It has an excellent reputation. I’d like to be part of a company like that.” Or you might say, “I think your company could benefit from my skills.”
An interview often closes with the interviewer asking whether the candidate has any questions. Never say no. Ask about sales targets, change management, production cycles. Ask whatever you want! Just be sure to take this opportunity to show your interest.
