Q. Why should I hire you?

A. As I understand your needs, you are first and foremost looking for someone who can manage the sales and marketing of your book publishing division. As you've said you need someone with a strong background in trade book sales. This is where I've spent almost all of my career, so I've chalked up 18 years of experience exactly in this area. I believe that I know the right contacts, methods, principles, and successful management techniques as well as any person can in our industry.

Q. Where do you see yourself five years from now?

A. I am definitely interested in making a long-term commitment to my next position.

It's always been that way in my career, and I'm confident I'll have similar opportunities here.

Q. Why do you want to work at our company?

A. This question is your opportunity to hit the ball out of the park, thanks to the in-depth research you should do before any interview.
