Five years from now
Published on 17th November 2021
How many times have you been asked where or what you’d like to be in five years from now? It’s something I’ve been asked in interviews and self-assessments countless times.
I never know how to answer that question, at least from a professional perspective. The only response I can honestly give is that I want to be where I want to be right now.
I want to work at a company that:
- respects my abilities and lets me do my best work
- allows me time to continue to develop my skills
- respects my time
- pays me a good salary
I’d imagine this is what most people want from their professional lives. As for what I’ll be doing, that depends on how the industry evolves and the way my skills adapt.
