Question 1 of 25

Where do you see yourself in five years?

"In five years, I see myself continuing to grow and develop in my role. I see myself taking on more responsibilities, enrolling in leadership classes, and progressing to a more senior role. My ultimate goal in the next five years is to gain the skills and knowledge to advance to an executive assistant position within your company. That is the main reason I applied to this position since you strongly encourage and support your employees with professional development, which not all companies do."
