  • This is one of the questions asked to test how obsessed you are with making more money or if that has shattered your self confidence already. Do not try to fake that you don't care about money or bringing out situations where you turned down jobs that were offering you more. Money is important and you have to admit it to yourself before you start answering this question. They must have already figured out that you were making lesser than usual in your previous job so it is absolutely not advisable to deny it by bragging about a false salary. All you need to do is to make them believe that you haven't given up on your dream of making it big soon.

    Your answer must begin with admitting that money is important to you and that you have been working hard on getting to the place where you belong. You can add that you find this particular job the place where your search for your dream job ends and that you are enticed both by the work you would be doing and the package that comes with it. Coming straight to what they asked you, describe how you believe in earning well but only at the right place, where you would do things you are at good at and passionate about.

    If you have been through the ups and downs of life that have hampered your growth, you can explain that but only if you are comfortable bringing out your vulnerable self in front of the interviewer. You can by all means explain the hardships of life that prevented your career from growing but make sure you end it with a positive note that shows your confidence towards future prospects.
