What Motivates You ?

This is a popular interview question
Following are 3 sample answers
I am very result-oriented person; my primary motivation is to achieve the desired end result.  While I enjoy working on the project of my own, I am particularly motivated by the buzz of working in a team. It’s very exciting working closely with others, who share the same common goal. I also like to take on the challenge, and rise to that challenge as part of a concerted team effort.
Primarily, my ability to work hard and delivering result motivates me.  But subsequent recognition of my efforts gives me the encouragement for my next efforts.

Responsibility towards work motivates me the most and my aim within any company is to move up to greater levels of responsibility to achieve each goal with better responsibilities.
  • Sometimes, the best solution is to be honest- you can say money is your motivational factor, but it should be your last option
  • Mention things like Job satisfaction, working towards a goal, contributing to a team effort or developing your skills- provide a specific example that supports your response
  • Excitement for new challenges
  • Quest for personal development
What not to say:
  • Do not mention that you are motivated by bragging rights, material things or fear of being disciplined
