I've got an interview soon at a small research/consultancy firm.
I've already had one interview at a similar firm but struggled with the following question:
"Where do you see yourself in 5/10 years time?"
Both firms are quite small (employing <50 people) and cater to quite a niche market, so realistically because there is limited scope for advancement, anyone with high ambitions will be looking to exit within 2/3 years.
How exactly do you pull off sounding committed to a small firm without giving off the impression you lack ambition.
Bearing in mind I will be interviewed by the Department Head, so saying "I'd like to head up Research" would sound like "I want to take your job"
How are you celebrating?
