For your role in the company?
How would you like to be remembered?
For a job you might have held for years?

Can they tell you a story about the job?
How does it relate to your personal and professional experiences?
Do you have a story that speaks to your strengths or weaknesses?
Third, consider how the job will help you grow in the job market.
Will your job make you more employable?
Will your work improve the quality of your work or your overall experience?
Do your colleagues or employers find you attractive?
Do they think your resume or cover letter is professional?
Will you be able to find work that matches your qualifications and experience?
