How should you answer the question, “Where do you see yourself in five years.”
I want you to do two things:
- Let the hiring manager know that you plan to stay with them.
- Let him also know that you aspire to grow with the company.
Have a knowledge of the possible path that your career can take you in the company. You should be aware of the company’s culture and the industry standard. For example, let’s say you are interviewing for an entry level engineering position in a company. Based on your research, you know that you can become a senior engineer within 5 years in the company.
You can respond to that question this way “ In five years, I want to continue to work in this fantastic company, and hoping to grow in my career because of my contribution to my team.”
Don’t just tell them that you want to continue to work for the company. Let them know that you plan to grow with the company, and also that you know you will deliver results for the company in order to achieve the projected growth.
