Where do you see yourself in 2 to 3 years from now, or where would you like to be?
Provide an honest answer and do not hesitate to mention you would be open to eventually moving up the ladder should the opportunity arise, i.e., that growth opportunities will be more than welcome. This will demonstrate you have leadership skills, a willingness to learn beyond your original job scope, and a desire to commit to your employer.
Answer examples
"I see myself working for the same employer, being established and having grown with the organization and contribute to the bottom line. I hope to keep learning and being given the opportunity to prove myself as a valuable team member."

Like any one else, I look for a long term relationship with the company. After giving considerable amount of time, if there are opportunities to grow within the company, until then.
Provided it provide opportunities to grow in my career I would stay in my department until I will retire.
It solely depends on Comapny.
Well, I have had much interest in working in a hospitality industry and since this is a great opportunity, I would like to stay until my contract expires and would like to extend should I get an extension.
I hope that it will be as long as possible.
As long as I can I can contribute in the achievement of the dpartment's.
For at least the next five years, I have held many jobs and I love the culture of the university and its staff. If I did leave the department it would potentially be to progress on to a role with more responsibility in the university.
I can see the role covers all aspect of accounts, I would love to continue working as long as I can unless the department lead see that I can be of further help in another area, that will support the department I am working for.
For as long as am not bored.
As long as my contract allows me. But I will be pleased if it can be renewed.
I hope to work in the accounting department for many years. I believe that I have a lot to bring to the table but more importantly I understand that I have much to learn in this field. In five years I hope to still be a project manager, albeit a more senior one, who can share and help develop junior staff members. This is a wonderful company to work for. I am aware of all the good it does in the community and I'd be proud to be a part of that.
I want to work with you untill your company exits.
