You must have set goals for yourself in life. Short term or long term goals. Tell the interviewer what career goal you have set. You want to rise the corporate ladder, you want to become an entrepreneur after 5 – 10 years, You want to be in the board of directors. It can be anything but yes be very specific. It’s your goal and you should be clear about it. If you are unclear or hesitant about your career goal it sounds negative as you will not reach a specific destination until and unless you plan and you can never dream of doing something big without proper planning and execution.
Goals are the specific destinations which have been planned by you and you also allot a certain time period for its completion. In the absence of properly planned goals, you seem as a confused personality.
