What are your goals for the future?

How to Use

Interviewer: What are your goals for the future?

Tina: As of now, I do not have any specific long-term goals. I just want to find a job that is a good fit for me, work as hard as I can, and try to be successful.

Interviewer: That makes sense. Well, if you get the job here, what will your goals be?

Tina: My first goals will be to adapt to my new position and to contribute in a positive way to the company. After I become more comfortable, then I can make more specific goals like improving my presentation skills or increasing my sales numbers. I usually use the feedback that I get from my co-workers and manager to set my goals for the next year.

Interviewer: I think that is very smart. We do employee evaluations at the end of every year and it gives everyone a chance to give and receive feedback.
