Yes, what do you really think about their company?
What do you think the interviewer wants to know? What do you think she or he wants to hear from you?
When an interviewer asks you this kind of question, she or he is looking for that candidate that speaks to the complete knowledge of the organization.
For the purpose of this question, here are some of the things the interviewer is looking for:
- The interviewer wants to know whether or not you really know the company you are planning to be part of.
- The interviewer wants to know whether or not you know anything about their products or services.
- The interviewer wants to know whether you will be happy to be part of the organization.
If you have or know the answers to these questions, talk about them in a way that shows you have done your research. Don’t say anything you don’t know about the company or their products. Make sure you know what you are talking about.
If you want them to hire you, here are some things you shouldn’t talk about:
- Please do not say anything negative about the company. It is a red flag.
- Do not criticize any employees working in that organization.
- Don’t say you don’t know when you are asked to explain something.
- Don’t talk about the size of the company. The size of the company is not your problem, your problem is how to pass the interview.
Speak fluently about what you know about the company. Stay away from what you don’t know.
It is what you know about the company, and how you present it that will give you the job for which you are applying.
On the other hand, you will get in trouble when you try to present what you don’t know about the company. Don’t go there.
