Interview Questions on Career Objectives

interview questions on career objectives

Before you start job hunting, you should think about what you want to achieve in your career. Doing so can also help you prepare for job interviews since most employers would ask candidates questions related to career objectives.

What would you be doing five years from now?

Of course, you have to tell the future employer that in five years’ time, you will be working at their company. Then you can let the employer know your career plan, including the position you expect to climb up to by a certain time. You should point out areas in your plan that are in line with the company mission and developments.

How can we be assured that you will not leave as soon as a better job comes along?

Show the future employer that it is not your habit to change jobs frequently (if this is indeed the true account). Tell the employer that you are impressed with the team and the work environment. In addition, show that you are enthusiastic about joining the team to meet the challenges and development opportunities in this job. If your CV shows that you changed jobs quite frequently in the past, give reasons and try to ensure that this will not happen in the future.

What do you want to achieve in this job?

Tell the employer how and what you are going to contribute to the company with your career knowledge and experience. You can also mention the achievements and developments you expect in your career. Let the employer know that these can be realized in the job they are going to offer.

What kind of jobs are you looking for now?

Tell them you look for similar positions in corporations of similar rank. Let the employer know that you are in the process of job hunting can show that you are serious in looking for a suitable job.
