Responding to the interview question: “What do you look for in a job?” By Matthew Coppola

What do you look for in a job?

Asking this question provides the interviewer with insight and understanding of what it is that you are after in a job and what is going to motivate you to stay and put forth your best effort.

By finding out what you look for in a job, the interviewer can then compare that with what they have on offer and to see if it matches up with what you want.

My suggestion is to be genuine and sincere about what you are looking for in a job. You can the finish up your answer by mentioning about how you feel that the job you are being interviewed for will meet your expectations and requirements in a position.
