Job Interview: Practice Questions and Answers

What Are Your Career Goals?

Next » « Previous


Especially if you are going back to work after a period of disability, this can be a difficult question to tackle, if you’re not prepared for it. You may be upset about your career being interrupted by your health condition, or you may be at a point where you don’t really know where you want to be in 5 years from now, let alone in 1 year, and are just glad to be able to consider going back to work. Whatever your particular situation, remember you are just selling yourself to a prospective employer. It doesn’t matter if you want to be a hairdresser or an architect. The important thing is that you provide a suitable answer to the interviewer.

Researching the company and the position before the interview will allow you to formulate an appropriate response to this question in line with the job for which you are applying.

The job you are applying for should fit into the career goals you bring up. It also gives you a chance to again talk about your strengths and why you are such a good fit for the job.

Keep the goals you describe in line with the job. If you’re applying for a job in a mail room, but say that your goal is to run the company, the interviewer would assume that you would not intend to stay at the job very long.
