Newspaper Columnist Interview Questions
Question 1 of 27

Where do you see yourself five years from now?

How to Answer
The candidate should discuss where they plan to be in their career after doing the job for a few years. A hiring manager is looking for someone who plans on sticking around for a while and growing with the company, and the candidate should discuss where they see their career going in a few short years. Oftentimes columnists stay in the same job for many years to gain viewership and publicity.

Answer Example
"In five years from now, I see myself being a front page columnist in the Sunday Times. I believe by then I can be someone the whole public will know well and trust for information on the local community."
