How to Use

Interviewer: Why do you want this job?

Greg: Ever since I was young, I have been interested in cars. When I started studying mechanical engineering at Boston University, I knew that I wanted to work and develop car engines. Your company is one of the leading car manufacturers in the world, and I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to develop the most powerful and fuel-efficient engines with the other engineers at your company.

Interviewer: I love your enthusiasm. Do you have any actual experience working with cars?

Greg: I have never worked for a major car company, but while I was attending university, I worked as a mechanic at a car shop. I mostly repaired cars that had been in accidents, but I also tuned and repaired engines.

Interviewer: That sounds like it was a great experience.

Greg: Yes. I really enjoyed working there, but now that I have my degree, I would like to join a company where I can work on developing new and more powerful engines. I truly believe that this is the perfect position for me.
