Question: Describe your ideal company, location and job.

Answer: TRAPS: This is often asked by an experienced interviewer who thinks you may be overqualified, but knows better than to show his hand by posing his objection directly. So he?ll use this question instead, which often gets a candidate to reveal that, indeed, he or she is looking for something other than the position at hand.
BEST ANSWER: The only right answer is to describe what this company is offering, being sure to make your answer believable with specific reasons, stated with sincerity, why each quality represented by this opportunity is attractive to you.
Remember that if you?re coming from a company that?s the leader in its field or from a glamorous or much admired company, industry, city or position, your interviewer and his company may well have an ?Avis? complex. That is, they may feel a bit defensive about being ?second best? to the place you?re coming from, worried that you may consider them bush league.
This anxiety could well be there even though you?ve done nothing to inspire it. You must go out of your way to assuage such anxiety, even if it?s not expressed, by putting their virtues high on the list of exactly what you?re looking for, providing credible reason for wanting these qualities.
If you do not express genuine enthusiasm for the firm, its culture, location, industry, etc., you may fail to answer this ?Avis? complex objection and, as a result, leave the interviewer suspecting that a hot shot like you, coming from a Fortune 500 company in New York, just wouldn?t be happy at an unknown manufacturer based in Topeka, Kansas.
