Where do you see yourself five years from now? How to answer this question?

What are your plans for your career? If you haven’t given much consideration to the future, now is a good time to do so because you may be questioned about it during job interviews. When you’re applying for a new job, you could be asked, “Where do you see yourself in five years?” or “In 10 years, where do you see yourself?”
It might be difficult to define where you want to go in your job next year, many alone five years (or longer). Even if you do know, you must be careful how you react since your response must be tailored to the position for which you are applying.

How to answer this question
Questions regarding your future goals might be difficult to answer—you must be honest while still being relevant to the position and sector. For example, if you’re interviewing for an accounting position, don’t mention your five-year ambition of publishing a novel.
However, it is critical to have a strong response. Responding poorly or being unclear in your response may give recruiters the impression that you are uninterested in your profession, are not a good match for the firm or are hiding something. Here are some pointers on how to react to inquiries regarding the next stage of your career while still expressing your interest in the position you’re being interviewed for.
