MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE
A regular job-interviewing question is where you see yourself in 5 years.
You should answer the question honestly, but your answer should also reflect the research you put into the company.
There is currently a high job turnover rate. Employers are trying to see which candidates are likely to stick around.
The question forces you to look at your future. Lean into the question instead of away from it.
You may be very ambitious to climb as high and as far up the company as soon as possible. If you shoot too high, you may alarm your interviewers and come off as over-eager or unrealistic.
