Reframe a Tough Interview Question

You’ve probably been asked this Lperennial, annoying question: “Where do you see yourself in five years?” Your interviewer will often use it to get at several pieces of information at once. So before responding, try to determine what they really want to know. Look for subtext in other questions they’ve asked or in comments they’ve made. For instance, has the hiring manager mentioned that you’d be replacing someone who left the company after just six months? Maybe he wants to find out how long you’ll stick around, since the cost of turnover is so high. Or did he raise the question right after asking you to describe your ideal job? Perhaps he’s trying to get at whether the position is a good match for you and how long you’ll enjoy doing it. After you’ve replied, follow up with something like, “Did that answer your question?”



Always leave the office on time

Work is a never ending process regardless of how hard you work. You can never finish all the work. Interest of a client or employer is not more important than of your family. If you fail in life your boss or client will not be the person to offer helping hand but your family and friends will be.

Life does not mean coming to office going home and sleeping.  there is more to a life. You need time to socialise,  relax and do some exercise. Don't make your life meaningless. 

A person who sits office is not a hardworking person. He is a fool who does not know how to manage the work with stipulated time. Beside he is a loser who does not have personal or social life.

You did not study and struggle in life just to be a machine.  Productivity of the person who leaves office on time are far more better than those who stay late in office, and enhance social life. Also increases family bonding.

However, sometimes we are forced to leave office little late due to our work style or to complete a perticular task before the deadline. Most of the modern offices are open with no cubicles. You may prefer to work in a quite environment. In such cases you may need to stay late.
