How to answer
First of all, what are your goals? Maybe you want to work at a zoo. You might even aspire to work in veterinary internal medicine. This question may seem overwhelming as you are entering your first job in a new career. Take heart! It's okay if you don't have your future all figured out! Here's a way to answer it: "I really enjoy helping sick and injured animals in emergency situations. Right now I am refining the skills that would help me work in critical care." You may be asked a follow up question like, "Why do you enjoy emergency medicine?" or asked to give an example of a situation. Talk about the details. What skills and knowledge will you gain from this job you're applying for that will help you to accomplish your goal? Knowing how this new position will fit into your career goals and articulating that to your interviewer will help you score extra points!
