How to Use

Interviewer: Where do you want to be in 10 years?

Abby: Ten years from now, I hope to still be working on innovative and exciting projects in the automotive software industry. I think that the car industry will go through a lot of exciting changes in the next ten to twenty years and I hope to be a part of it.

Interviewer: What kind of changes are you most interested in?

Abby: Obviously, the emergence of self-driving cars is the biggest change that the automotive industry will face. I am most interested in designing safety software for those cars. I think this work can make a big difference and help people stay safe. Right now, many people die each year from car accidents. This can be reduced with self-driving cars and smart software.

Interviewer: Do you hope to get promoted during that time?

Abby: To be honest, that is not very important to me. What project I am working on is much more important. I enjoy working on challenging and interesting projects.

Interviewer: There is nothing wrong with that. It is good that you know what you want.
