If you’ve ever applied for a job or had a job interview, we’re sure you’ve had to answer “why do you want to work for us?” or some variation.
Here are some ways to answer it when next you have to:
1. “Because you’re hiring”
Just tell them that it’s because they’re hiring and that they shouldn’t stress you. Instead of them to be happy that somebody wants to work for them, they’re busy asking JAMB question.
2. “I need money”
Everybody needs money, and you’re no exception. Why else would you be there?
3. “To shame my enemies”
After your step mother and Iya Asake swore for you that you will not get a job till you turn 50, you want to shame them. They should help you prove to them that your God is bigger than them.
4. “To prove my Primary 4 teacher wrong”
Tell them you want to prove your Primary 4 teacher wrong for saying you won’t make it in life. That you want to work for them so you can have money to buy a car and splash rain water on that lying teacher.
5. “I want to help you”
Tell them it’s because you’re trying to help their life. They’re looking for employee, you’re looking for employer. They should help you help them.
6. “Why shouldn’t I want to work for you?”
This is honestly the best response. Fire them back with “why shouldn’t I?” Ask them if they’re hiding something and what they’re hiding. Abi they think it’s only them that can ask question.
