In the final video of our series on tackling tough interview questions, Modis President Jack Cullen takes a look at the big picture: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” This question often serves as a way for interviewers to gauge how a candidate’s long-term goals align with that of their organization. Because of that, it can be quite challenging to answer honestly and effectively.
As Jack mentioned, it’s important to emphasize how the position and the company fit into your plan. Great answers address realistic and flexible goals and discuss them in terms of achievements and responsibilities:
“As a driven individual, continually developing my skills is a top priority in my five-year plan. I want to be the best at what I do, therefore working somewhere that presents opportunities for growth is essential. A critical piece of my plan involves working on dynamic projects with people I can learn from which is why I want to work here. I want to invest my time working toward professional advancement and being an expert in my field.”
