Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in five years?

Interviewer: What steps are you taking to achieve your goal?

Jon: Well, I am currently attending night school to get my MBA and I will have completed the program by the end of next year. Also, I actively look for my weaknesses and focus on improving them. I think that if I can continue to improve and get better that I will be a perfect fit for a senior level management position.
