Though a common interview question, ‘What motivates you at work?’ is one that is particularly difficult to answer and often catches graduates off-guard.
This question is designed to make you reflect on what your goals are at work and how you intend to achieve them. They want:
Success is what motivates me to do a good job. Knowing the fact that my hard work and perseverance will help me achieve greater professional success is what keeps me going. I feel that aligning the company’s vision and values with my own is one way to achieve that. When I know that my efforts are following the correct path, it encourages me to push more. Hence, for me, success is important both at a personal as well as at an organizational level.
I am motivated by professional growth. In my current job role, I am always looking for ways to teach myself new things, for example, I watch YouTube tutorials and read blogs in order to learn more about different topics. I find developing my industry knowledge and upskilling really valuable, and that’s something I can really see myself doing in this role.
My biggest motivation is family. They are my biggest source of inspiration and my strongest supporters as well. When I see my parents working, it gives me the drive to be like them. Their dedication to working is what motivates me to be like them. They remain, my go-to people, when I feel under the weather or less motivated.
All in project any answer with confidence and back it up with anecdotical evidence.
