When you are new to your career, you will often have to put in a 10X effort to grow your career and work your way up the rungs in your new organization. The interviewer wants to see that you are willing to put in the work that it takes. This added effort may mean studying in the evening while you train in your new position. Maybe it means getting the less desirable shifts at first. Whatever efforts are required, show the interviewer your willingness to make it happen.

"I will wholeheartedly put in what it takes to get properly trained. I know that at the start, I will be required to put in many hours of overtime and I am certainly willing to do so."
"My creative mind never shuts off so you will have my full investment of time whenever you need it. I am available to work on special projects on the weekends, and will work in the evenings to ensure project deliveries and more."
"Evenings and weekends are fine with me. I will take as many hours as you will offer me. I am a hard worker and understand the importance of overdelivering at work."
"I can assure you that you wouldn't have to ask me twice if the time came for overtime work. I know how to exceed expectations and understand that working evenings and weekends may be a part of that."
