Popular video conferencing app Zoom reported this morning that it’s experiencing “partial outages” for its key video Meetings service just before 9 a.m. ET on Monday.
“We have received reports of users being unable to visit the Zoom website (zoom.us) and unable to start and join Zoom Meetings and Webinars. We are currently investigating and will provide updates as we have them,” the company said on its service website.
The demand for teleconferencing has skyrocketed since coronavirus started in January of this year. The videoconferencing company has become a crucial tool for most people working from home due to the lockdown associated with coronavirus pandemic. Millions of people around the world rely on Zoom to work from home. Zoom is currently being used by over 300 million users worldwide.

WHO warned world leaders to stop using lockdowns as a ‘primary control method’ for the pandemic
Earlier today, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a national lockdown until December 2 as coronavirus cases top 1 million in Great Britain. “From Thursday until the start of December you must stay at home, you may only leave home for specific […]
Earlier today, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a national lockdown until December 2 as coronavirus cases top 1 million in Great Britain. “From Thursday until the start of December you must stay at home, you may only leave home for specific reasons. Now is the time to take action, because there is no alternative,” Johnson said in a televised address to the nation.
Johnson’s announcement came just after the World Health Organization (WHO) warning back in the middle of this month. Dr. David Nabarro, WHO’s special envoy on COVID-19, appealed to world leaders not to use lockdowns as a method to curb the spread of COVID-19 in their countries. Great Britain is now doing the exact opposite. And none of the European leaders seems to heed WHO’s advice.
“Unless we act, we could see deaths in this country running at several thousand a day,” said Johnson, who was hospitalized earlier this year for a serious case of COVID-19. Bars and restaurants will be closed, and travel between regions banned. Schools will stay open, but universities will move online.
Johnson is not alone. In France, President Emmanuel Macron ordered a new lockdown until December. People are not to leave their homes except to buy essential goods, seek medical care, and exercise for an hour a day.
Dr. Nabarro said the lockdowns are a bad idea and called on world leaders to not use lockdowns as their ‘primary control method’ for the pandemic. Dr. Nabarro warned seven months too late that the ubiquitous global response to the coronavirus pandemic might be a bit of an oopsie-daisy.”
Dr. Nabarro warned that “lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer.”

U.K. coronavirus cases top 1 million: Prime Minister Boris Johnson to announce a month-long national lockdown as coronavirus cases surge
For the first time since the coronavirus pandemic started this year, the United Kingdom recorded 1 million cases of coronavirus as the country braced for another round of lockdown since March. Prime Minister Boris Johnson expected to announce a month-long national lockdown during […]
For the first time since the coronavirus pandemic started this year, the United Kingdom recorded 1 million cases of coronavirus as the country braced for another round of lockdown since March. Prime Minister Boris Johnson expected to announce a month-long national lockdown during a 5 P.M. press conference in London.
Britain is not alone. This Wednesday, 523 French people died of coronavirus in just 24 hours. The French government is also planning a month-long nationwide lockdown to stop the spread of COVID-19
For the first time last week Thursday, Europe reported 200,000 daily infections, as many Southern European countries reported their highest number of cases in a single day. So far, Europe accounts for nearly 19% of global deaths and about 22% of global cases.
In the meantime, while the rest of Europe is going through the second round of lockdowns, Sweden remains the only country where life has returned back to normal. The tiny Scandinavian country, which never had a lockdown, saw its COVID-19 cases going down at a time when countries across Europe are seeing alarming surges in daily coronavirus infections.
According to Reuters tally, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Russia, Belgium, and Spain account for nearly two-thirds of about 250,000 deaths registered until now from a total of about 8 million cases across Europe.

Initially, it seems a lot easier to answer, but it isn’t as easy as it seems to be. The hiring manager often asks this question to check if the candidate appearing for this position is fit for his/her role or not. They want to test the seriousness of the candidate towards their company.
Answering questions like these requires preparation and some research on the company you’re applying for.
In this article, we will discuss all the tips and tricks you’ll need to ace the question- Why do you want this job?
1. Different forms of the question- “Why do you want this job?”
Sometimes the interviewer may twist the question and ask it in some other form to test the candidate. However, make sure that the answer to all these questions will remain the same.
The questions may be asked as:
- Why are you interested in the company?
- Why are you interested in the job?
- Why do you want to work for us?
- Why this company?
- Why would you like to work here?
You must be able to answer all of these questions to ace your interview, and to do so; you’ll need to do some research. So, let’s proceed with that.
2. Research the company.
Along with sharing your motives and goals towards the company, you will also be needing to check the company’s background thoroughly. If you already know all about the company and why it’s a good match for you, you can skip this part and practice your answer.
- Company’s website: You can start by researching its website as it is the easiest and the most convenient way to know the company. Most of the job prospects and essential things are mentioned on the website only. The company’s website covers everything from firm history to the mission statement to product lines to the latest awards and accomplishments. Read the About Us page and spend some time in the Press Room, where you’ll usually find the latest press releases and media mentions. Check their social links, also like LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.
- Media coverage: Check recent articles, press releases, industry publications, etc. of the company. These publications can help you find the recent trends and reputation of the company.
- Social network: Check out the company’s LinkedIn handles and Twitter handle, know about its latest news and interests.
3. Time to answer!
Now that your research is complete, it’s time for the showtime!
Make sure that the interviewer is looking for someone serious towards their company. So your answer must reflect seriousness and goals and motives towards the company. A right answer will demonstrate knowledge of the company and industry.
Reasons you can give for answering – why do you want this job?
- Company general reputation
- The reputation of critical leaders
- Admiration of products/services
- Admiration of other company initiatives (marketing campaign, community involvement, training programs)
- Company culture and values
- Company growth/success
Try thinking of some other reasons, but don’t answer, “I want to work here because I’m trying to find a job.”
It is an unprofessional answer and creates a wrong impression on the interviewer.

4. Tips for answering- Why do you want this job?
- Research the company ahead of time- Respondents will be listening to a response that indicates that you have researched the company. Make sure you know some necessary details about the company and the job. You may want to read the latest articles in the company to get a sense of their current goals and projects. Also, be sure to re-learn posting work. In this way, in answering the question, you could say something about the company and the position that you are interested in.
- State clearly why you feel that way- Explain what makes you well prepared for this role. To prepare your answer, make a list of job requirements (as defined in the job list), and identify which needs match your skills and experience. In your answer, highlight a few skills you need to get the job and include practical examples of your previous jobs.
- Emphasize what you can do- Your feedback should also emphasize what you can put in the company – what will you replace? Mention any skills or knowledge of the job that makes it a unique, stable history of that job. If possible, use numbers to show how you can add value to your business. For example, if you keep your previous company a certain amount of money, say this, and say you want to do the same for this company.
Follow these tips and ace your interview!

5. Common mistakes.
- Avoid reasons that are too personal- If true, you might cite a salary, hours, or commute to work as a prime reason. Remember that you want to focus on how you can benefit the company, not how the company or job can benefit you.
- Do not renew your resume for a long time- Although the sample responses here refer to the candidates’ information, they only indicate that the respondents have several years of experience listed in the “minor qualifications” section. Providing a long history of work puts a lot of emphasis on you; your primary focus should be on the company you rented and the amount you can bring to them. Choose and be short on items for your work history you choose to share.
6. Sample answers for answering – Why do you want this job?
“I love interacting with customers, and my last job took me a bit away from that. I’m looking to find a role that will let me get back to the direct customer interaction I enjoy. I took a look at the job description before coming in, and it seems like this role involves a lot of customer-facing work.”
“I think my biggest motive right now in my job search is to continue building my business development skills. I took on more and more of that in my last role as a Recruiter and enjoyed it a lot. I reviewed the job description and saw this mentioned a lot, so I thought the position seems like a good fit for what I want, but a role where my skill set would be well-used and needed. So that’s why I want this job.”
I am looking for a firm where I can enjoy what I am doing, but I can also transition into new positions. I am very good at what I do, but new tools and technologies are coming out in the computer science field. I want a company that allows me to learn more and expand my capabilities into new areas. The fact that you sponsor a week of training every year and that most of the people I’ve met have been here more than five years shows me that we share the same values.
So, I hope this article solved all your queries and doubts regarding why you want this job.
Good luck with your future ahead and ace the interview!
