Usually standard answers such as "to gain experience in working as part of a team/on my own" or whatever would be fine, but someone who has actually applied for a job would be able to tell you better. tongue.gif

I always say something about their company being associated with quality and how it will help me in the future... "As journalism is a very people orientated career, I would like as much experience as possible in working with people before I return to university in September."

Yeh lol- the girl who I work with said in her interview in response to "Why would you like to work here?":
"Because I'm skint and I need a job for money."

Yes... I did say the girl I work with who got the job from interview...

Anyhoo... write about why in particular it's that restaurant that attracts you - quality, good atmosphere, you have always found their staff very pleasant etc. (even if you haven't been there!) Then talk about how you'd like to gain experience in working in that kind of environment and learn how to interact with the public. Then put how you feel that you'd be well suited to the job (list all of your admirable qualities!) Basically just babble a load of nonsense. Always works!
"...You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise....
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise."
