Discussing charitable donations in an interview?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 26, 2013 10:58 am

I'm interviewing with a firm that has a whole section on their website specifically devoted to their charitable donations. I know we're supposed to avoid discussing pro bono during interviews for fear of sounding like we want to "save the world," but when this firm inevitably asks why I'm interested in them would it be acceptable to include the fact that they place an emphasis on giving back to their community?

I wouldn't do it and I definitely wouldn't mention it as a primary reason.
