Why did you decide for a career of graphic designer?


Breaking the ice in a graphic design job interviewExceptional graphic designers are always driven by passion, creativity and love.

This job is good. We all know it. Clean working environment, different projects all the time, exceptional salary. You name it! However, different motives of career choice should resonate in your answer.

Focus on your love to designing, on perfect predispositions to have a job, on strong belief in added value you can bring to the team as a graphic designer,  on a chance to change something in the world (or at least in a corporation).

At the end of the day, we all work for money. Nobody would spend ten years in front of a computer designing things, if there wasn’t a paycheck waiting at the end of each month. We need money to live. But we should not talk about it in an interview. It is obvious after all…

Sample answers

I love to design. I have been designing things since my childhood. I designed my own plastic models, dresses and campaigns for our student company. I believe one can do a good job on any position only if he likes what he does. And I love to do design various things, so my job preference is obvious.

Firstly, I fulfill the requirements from your job description. Then I have browsed the portfolio of your company and believe we  have similar ideas on creative design and campaigns that actually sell. Therefore I believe I can fit well in this working environment and bring added value to your team. That’s the reason for my career choice.
