The candidate should talk about what inspires them to work in politics and how they began their career and developed their interest. Whether it was something they loved as a child, began their interest in college, or something they became passionate about later in life, they should talk about what motivates them to go into work each day and report on politics.
"I hope to finish my career as a political analyst for CNN. I am from the DC area originally and would love to end up working at home, and before I get to that point, I hope this job covering politics will teach me how to talk casually about politics in a way that people understand."
Whether the candidate's final career move is a few years away or a few decades off, the candidate should talk about what they believe is their ultimate goal. This will show the interviewer what kind of ways they will be trying to improve on their skills, and what kind of worker they may be.
