How you view work, and your career, will be a huge factor for the interviewer when determining your fit with their organization. Just like a company will have a value and mission statement, so should you. Your philosophy can be a quote that resonates with you or a list of values that are important to you. Be sure that your belief aligns nicely with the goals of the interviewing company. Be brief. The interviewer is not looking for a dramatic monologue.
"I am tenacious and an eager learner. My philosophy is that there is always room to learn and that mistakes are teaching opportunities, not failures."
"My philosophy in life, and in work, is to treat others with respect at all times. It's pretty simple! I approach clients with kindness; I deliver my work when I say that I will, and I am an active listener."
"I like to let my team dream, feel involved, and approach me with their ideas. You could say my work philosophy is one that allows for brainstorming and encourages the creative use of resources."
"My favorite quote by Aristotle is "Pleasure in the job puts perfection in work." This quote sums up my work philosophy perfectly."
"I read your company's philosophy, and it very much aligns with my attitude towards my work. I want my customers to feel like we know each other and that our store is like home to them. Nobody is a stranger unless you treat them as such."
"My philosophy is "Relationship above all else." If I have a stable relationship with my client, I can maximize my sales opportunity while also maximizing the ways they benefit from my products and services."
"Funny enough my inspiration for my work philosophy, as an educator, comes from George Clooney. He once said that "Failures are infinitely more instructive than successes." I have this saying posted in my classroom to encourage my students when they make mistakes. We all make mistakes, but it's whether we learn from them that is important."
"My philosophy, when it comes to work, is to do my best every single day. Never procrastinate and always approach a challenge with an open mind. This mentality has certainly helped me work my way through many challenges in the workplace."
"My philosophy towards work is that if you choose a career that you love, it will never feel like a drag. I chose this career because it left me feeling whole, even after a busy day. People rely on me and I am able to help them to live a life with dignity."
"i take my work seriously and am committed to performing to be best of my ability. The company's success is my success. I also value respect and as such, am extremely respectful toward all clients and every single individual at the company."
