      1st Answer Example

      "If I am fortunate enough to be hired for this role, my goal in the near term is to get up to speed on my responsibilities and learn as much as possible about the organization and my team. For my first year, I want to be a sponge and soak in as much as I can. From there, as long as I feel empowered to drive growth for the company and continue learning and growing professionally, I think I would be very fulfilled."

      "I believe in working hard in my role so that I can understand areas that can be improved upon. I also want to understand ins and outs of the organization that would help me to look for opportunities to improve the finance department to be as efficient as possible. I believe in the next five years, I will be an expert in my role and able to extend my expertise to other departments."

      You have taken a great approach to this question by assuring the interviewer that you expect to be in the role you are interviewing for the long-term and anticipate growing professionally in that time to the benefit of the company. Great job! If possible, discuss some of the smaller goals you would set for yourself over 5 years to realize that career growth.
