"I am excited about this opportunity because your values are very much in line with mine. I deeply care about giving back to the community. I also feel like this job will help me reach my goal of working in a management position, because of the leadership opportunities within this role."
"I have had my eye on new openings in your company for some time now. Your reputation for employee development and community involvement is something that I admire. I see a long term fit here."
"I want this job because it aligns perfectly with my career ambitions. This is my dream job."
Recruiters and hiring managers often receive hundreds of applications per job. If you are lucky enough to land an interview, make some effort and conduct research on the opportunity. Think about how this job will help you in your career. It's important for you to know not only what you have to offer them, but what they can do for you. While your passion and excitement about the job are important, it's always good to have some hard facts to back it up. For instance, saying 'I have heard great things about your company and I know I would be a great fit for this job', is not very specific.

"My inspiration comes from my grandmother. She has spent every day of her life working hard and I have never once heard her complain about being tired and overworked. She taught me the value of a good reputation and I still seek out her opinion when I need inspiration."
"There are many industry leaders that inspire me but I would have to say that my greatest inspiration comes from my mother who always taught me to stay focused and goal oriented, no matter the obstacles that come my way. This way of thinking has greatly attributed to my success."
"I am inspired by the workers on the assembly line. Many of them have hectic lives, mouths to feed, and less than impressive education. They overcome their hardships and come to work every day to make life better for themselves and their children."
This question is something that you should have an answer ready for at all times. Perhaps you look up to a parent who was a hard worker, or a teacher who encouraged you to become who you are today. Whomever this inspiring person may be, remember that the interviewer is looking for a heartfelt response.
