The question

What particularly attracted you to this job?

Why do want to work here.

What is it about this job that you find interesting?

What they are looking for

With this question they are inviting you to show your understanding of the company and the work.

They are also testing how positive you are and that you have specific goals. They want people who will apply themselves and add value, not freeloaders who are just looking for a nice employer.

How to answer

Do not talk about why you want to leave where you are now - that is not the question.

It can be good to talk about why the company is great but do not just say 'I want to work for your company' as it sounds like you have nothing to contribute.

Show you have done your homework and how you will fit in. Hint how your skills will add to their capability (without criticizing them).

I have always admired your product styling and believe I can help further with the flair in marketing. My present employer is known for its campaigns and I worked in many of these. I would love to bring some of this to XYZ Corp.

You can use geography but only with care and as a supporting. 'I want to be near my mother' says nothing. More useful is to indicate that there are no barriers to you moving to the area.

This is a beautiful area and I'd be happy to settle here.
