Review sample answers to the interview question "Are you a self motivator?" When you respond, keep in mind that companies are seeking motivated and enthusiastic employees.

  • Absolutely. I am a very active person, and I enjoy my work. I'm always looking for new and innovative ideas to bring to a project.
  • I believe I am a self motivator. I give my all to a project, and am always looking ahead to the next one at hand. Successfully completing one and moving on to the next is very exciting for me. I am passionate about my work, and truly enjoy working toward the next big goal.
  • I have always been self motivated. Coming from my background, not very much was expected of me after I finished High School. I always wanted more, and put myself through college and grad School with very little support from my family. In the workplace, I bring that same drive to managing projects and deadlines.
