How do you answer 'Why do you want to work for your city' on a job application?

This is something YOU have to write and not someone on here. You have to think of the reasons you love your city and just list those. Make a list of why you love your city and then add to that any reasons you'd love working for it (hours, benefits, etc.) ~ T

How do you answer 'Why do you want to relocate to this city' in a job interview?

be honest, closer to family, school or college, lower crime rate-because you are raising kids, lower state taxes, better benefits the area has to offer, area has better wages than other area, geographical location better because of type of career, (most people that are in the gas and oil industry move to Texas or Louisiana so they have less driving), cattle industry is Montana, if you are single and open to move without any specific reason,single and open for moving because of no family ties.

A quote from City Of Ember?

"On the day the world ended, the fate of mankind was carried in a small metal box. In a secret location, architects, scientists and engineers met and concluded that there was only one hope for our future: to build an underground city designed to keep its citizens protected for generations to come. The box was entrusted to the first mayor, who was to pass it on to her successor. As the years counted down, the box passed from mayor to mayor. None knew what secrets it held, only that it would open when it was needed most. But fate ran another course, and the chain was broken. The box was tucked away and forgotten, and as the city grew old and began to crumble, the box quietly clicked open."

She ran to her and her husband's room and tells Ember's father and he goes to the kitchen and he saw a fire. The fire was beginning get big. The fire just got bigger and bigger, and bigger. Ember's father cried and Ember's mother cried, and together they escape out of the house. In their hurry, they had left Ember inside the house, in her room, sleeping, all alone with the fire. When she died her mother and father make her a grave and they go to her grave every morning. There was nothing of Ember to save. Ember was very angry at her parents and a few days later she goes to her grave to see them, and they are pray to her and she didn't see they were there. She couldn't be entrusted on her doing, and she was very, very, very angry and she thought to herself to kill them. She goes to her house everyday and made a fire there and when she died she was air and other times she would turn into a fire and when she was fire she remember what had happened on that fateful. She was going to be very angry and she was going to be a ghost with Danny phantom on Nickelodeon.

Note- Whoever wrote this response has bad grammar. You have no idea how much time I spent correcting everything. Everything that person wrote was true, anyway. I also read the series, so I can't criticize that it was wrong, it just had incorrect grammar.
