A Typical HR question

You might have been asked where do you see yourself in 10 or 5 years down the line. Practically no one knows what will happen in the next moment how can we know about the next 5 to 10 years.

What the interviewer is looking for is whether you have any vision or not. People having a long-term vision are considered a great match for the companies especially if their vision matches with the company. I strongly doubt if someone has given an honest answer to being asked this typical question every time.

Let’s keep aside the HR for the time being. Do you still have the same answer like the one you spoke to HR? If not, let’s think more. How do you make a vision for a decade?

Most people think of having financial stability but it is not a concrete answer. It is vague for the brain. You still need to define what is financial stability for you. For someone having 10 lac in saving can be financial stability whereas for someone having 1cr in saving may not be. It differs from individual to individual.

Back to the question of how to have a vision, it won’t come in a second or just by closing your eyes. It will be an iterative process just like evolution. Matthew has explained well in his Oscar speech about the vision. Do give it a watch here.

Until then enjoy being indoor and think more…!
