It’s not just to find out if you are ambitious though, it is to find out what your ambitions are. And if you are comparing a man who intends on rising through the ranks quickly to a woman who wants a steady job and intends to take a fair bit of time off in the next five years to start a family, which one of those would you say is more ambitious?(Original post by ByEeek)
That is a completely different question. That is asked to find out if you are ambitious or not.
That is quite a different question to, "Do you plan to have children in the next 5 years." which in breach of the Equalities Act 2010.
But going to get a U!
