Career motivation

Interviewers ask career motivation questions to determine why you want to work for their company and why you want to work in role to which you have applied. Career motivation questions are similar to, but not the same as commitment to career questions and are often used as part of a competency based interview.

You need to logically illustrate your desire to work for the company you are interviewing with. Good answers should make reference to any: training, qualifications and/or experience that you would receive, if you were to be offered the role you have applied for.

Example Questions

Career motivation questions you may be asked include:

  • Why do you want to work for our firm?
  • Why do you want to work in the service line to which you have applied?
  • What can you tell me about us and the service line to which you have applied?
