How to Answer
Your motivation may be that the idea of success and achievement drives you. Perhaps you are working towards career advancement. Take some time to think about what truly motivates you.

Answer Example
"I believe that the Safaricom Limited purpose and culture are organically motivating. When you know that the work you do is ultimately designed to change people's lives for the better - giving them access to their community, education and health care resources like never before - that seems like a very powerful motivator. I believe that I am also highly intrinsically motivated. However, I am often encouraged by verbal recognition of my impact, along with compensation-based rewards. Being a leader comes naturally to me, so I don't find it an onerous task. My competitive side keeps me motivated as well."

Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Be sure to keep your reply upbeat, non-critical, and finish with a positive remark. The interviewer is looking for some light insight from you - this is a great chance to show what you've learned through your research of the company.

Answer Example
"I think you're exactly right; the telecommunications industry changes at almost the speed of light! So you have that challenge, and you also have the challenge of a potential gap between the opportunities and services you can provide in Kenya and the number of people who are appropriately trained to take advantage of them. I think one of the smartest things you're doing is Safaricom Academy, which steps in to provide appropriate education and training to fill that gap. That guarantees that as new innovations from Safaricom Limited become available, there's a generation of tech-savvy entrepreneurs who can use those innovations to better the human condition."
Answer Example
"This is an important question - while Safaricom Limited enjoys tremendous success and recognition in the telecommunications industry, it's important to keep striving for improvement and to better meet customer needs. One of the most important things Aveda can do along these lines is to keep engaging its customers - survey them, talk to them, engage them in brand ambassadorship so that those who are close to and love your brand can have a direct line to let you know what they need next. The many community-focused organizations and activities Safaricom Limited is involved in can provide tremendous opportunity for this type of engagement."

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
