How To Answer Interview Question - Can We Offer You A Career Path?

Your each job determines your next career move that is why I always suggest my clients that choose a job which will be beneficial for your career in long term. Some jobs do look good, having attractive compensation package but it may stuck you at your career path so, always avoid career mistakes and choose a job which have career development potential

Here  the questions is, how can you analyze the future of any job? but in actual job analysis is not so difficult, You do this analysis by different means.

  • From job advertisement
  • By gathering information about company
  • During interview.
For best analysis you should use all three means but as far as my recommendation is, interview is the best source of judging any job's future.

Most of people think only an interviewer can ask question during interview however it is wrong concept. An interview is a process of exchanging information and both interviewee and interviewer have rights to ask. You should ask some question in order to better know about the designation (for which you are being interviewed), about company, its policies etc.

With your RIGHT of asking questions, some of interviewer questions also provides you opportunity to better know about the company and the job, for which you are called and from those questions, one question from them is:

Can We Offer You A Career Path?

How? Let me show you but before showing this. I would like to have quick review of interview questions which we have already learnt to handle

  1. What Was The Toughest Decision You Ever Have Made?
  2. Why Do You Want To Work With Us?
  3. Why Should We Hire You?
Let us come to handle the todays interview question.
