Interview Questions & Answers: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Tags: Working in Recruitment
This is a hard one if you have not done sufficient research. You don’t have to answer with a specific job title. It’s a good idea to talk about advancing in the overall field or taking leadership roles at organisational or industry level. Of course, the answer needs to be logical for you, the job, the organisation and the industry. It is good to present a reasonable level of ambition, but being overly ambitious can be a limiting factor in certain roles or companies. Pitching your question wrongly can cost you the interview. Take care to research prospects for advancement BEFORE you attend the interview and answer accordingly.
