FAQ in PI : Where do you want to be in 5 years?
 
This is one of the most frequently asked questions in a Personal Interview. So, make sure you are well prepared with an answer before you step into the interview room. When asked this question, share with your interviewer the goals you have set in your life for the next five years. 
 
Since you are about to embark on an MBA journey, inform the interviewer how the MBA fits into your five-year goal. If you are keen on pursuing a job in the management role, enlighten your interviewer on the specific path you have in mind (e.g. finance manager, marketing manager, or strategy manager). When your career goals are in line with what you plan to pursue in a business school, it shows that you are focused and organized.
 
These are some of the qualities that interviewers are looking for. No business school wants candidates who are confused about their career goals or plans in life. So, always conduct in-depth research on your short term goals and be consistent with them throughout the interview.
 
Apart from the job role that you see yourself in, you can add in names of companies that you envision working for once you graduate from the business school. Generally, many business schools have on-campus interviews and they invite certain companies to hire students. 
 
So, if you see that there is an affiliation between the business school and the company of your dreams, inform your interviewer. He/she will definitely be impressed by your determination and motivation to excel in your career.
 
Never be vague in your answers. Interviewers want to know specifically what goals you have in mind and how you plan to achieve them. So, plan your answer step by step and clear the interview with flying colors.
