What are your short
and long term goals?
No one can make goals for
you. It comes down to where you are in your professional life and what you
want to do. Most people have 5-6 careers in their working lifetime---some
with 2 careers going at the same time (like us).
best advice is to be certain to relate your answers to the organization
that interviews you. Do not make a point of having goals that cannot be
realized there ("I want to work in Paris." Organization is
strictly domestic.) If you do your research into the organization, and
into what you truly want to do in the future, you will be able to come up
with reasonable responses. No one is going to come back to you in five
years and chastise you for not meeting these goals! You will not be held
to them...it is only an interview and they are interested in how you see
yourself (and they want to see you in the job.)
