Matt’s Answer

Hi David!
For me, money and benefits are only one part of why. For me, I look at the culture of the company that I work for, and how they live their mission. I'm grateful to work for an organization that genuinely cares about its mission, purpose and people. Money and rewards are great, but knowing that I'm making a difference, its a great mix.

Best of luck!
Matt

Hi David,

Money is important as we need to pay bills. Besides money, there are other factors that excite me for my current job.

• Being as asset to my team/firm
• Meaningful professional relationships
• Keeping relevant in the industry/world
• Keeping my mind sharp and my body healthy

Best wishes,
Alice

Li Nar’s Answer

The reason why I want to work:
1. To be connected with people
2. To contribute to society
3. To being of service to community

It's a form of give back. Inside of all that, there comes joy as well when the work I do makes the difference in the world.
I can't quite buy all the above with money and I can't be doing all that if I don't have money.
I consider that I'm being paid for my work that fosters great connections and makes a difference to the world.

Hop this gives you another perspective of the purpose to work & money.

I enjoy my work and my co-workers the interaction is great and being able to work with different people from all walks of life is a very rewarding experience. However, there is a simple fact of life in which you cannot ignore that is the fact that you need money in order to live in this world now were it comes from is up to the individual. Working for money is not a bad thing it is simply a necessity of life. Best of luck
