Question 51: What are your goals?
TRAPS: Not having any…or having only vague generalities, not highly specific goals.
BEST ANSWER: Many executives in a position to hire you are strong believers in goal setting.
(It’s one of the reasons they’ve achieved so much). They like to hire in kind. If you’re vague about your career and personal goals, it could be a big turnoff to many people you will encounter in your job search. Be ready to discuss your goals for each major area of your life: career, personal development and learning, family, physical (health), community service and (if your interviewer is clearly a religious person) you could briefly and generally allude to your spiritual goals (showing you are a well-rounded individual with your values in the right order).
Be prepared to describe each goal in terms of specific milestones you wish to accomplish along the way, time periods you’re allotting for accomplishment, why the goal is important to you, and the specific steps you’re taking to bring it about. But does this concisely, as you never want to talk more than two minutes straight before letting your interviewer back into the conversation.
