How to answer the question of "Why are you interested in working at company x?"
How do you answer this question properly when you are perfectly content working for your current job?
I was contacted directly by a recruiter through LinkedIn about a new opportunity witih a different company. It appears to be a good fit for the next level in my career progression.
I am following the CT advice which is to always keep your options open. The honest answer to the subject question is that I'm always open to new possibilities.
I am afraid that using this answer will result in a negative response form the interviewer, since they will not feel a strong vibe of enthusiasm from me. It's a much less sexy answer than "I've always wanted this job and to work for this company..."
At the same time, I don't want to pass up what could be a great opportunity for me in my career.
Lastly, I just started my new job in Jan of this year which makes it even more sticky.
