Tag it to your interests outside work. Are you competitive? This company will allow me to compete and I find working my way to the top fulfilling?

You should be motivated by thriving in the role you are applying for. Different roles have different answers

I was wondering about that

Wu-Tang had the best answer.... cash rules everything around me.

Motivation is personal. They want to hear the optimistic bullshit about the firm. Tell then personally what drives you. Knowledge, progression, whatever.

Having done too many interviews that always go towards the safe answer... I wish you the best whichever way you go with it.

I’ve asked a similar triggered question. One interviewee gave such a touching answer. His motivation as an immigrant first generation graduate he wants to provide for his family here and back home. That’s why he wakes up every day to go out and hustle to help his loved ones. I’d say always make it personal, there is no right answer. But there is always a bland “I like challenges, or learn more, blah blah”.

Say you are motivated to put your family in a better spot than the one you grew up in. And as you pursued that, say you realized that you want to unlock your full potential which is greater than you ever imagined.

Question: How to manage such timings like use an app or write it down or how as there are back to back calls its pretty difficult for me to keep track of what is when.

Thanks in advance for your time and support.
