Funny clip.   :Thmbsup:

During the job interview when asked the obligatory question "where do you see yourself in five years?" I always wanted to answer "In five years I'll be your boss's boss.  At which time you'll both be fired."

During the job interview when asked the obligatory question "where do you see yourself in five years?" I always wanted to answer "In five years I'll be your boss's boss.  At which time you'll both be fired."

The proper way to answer that question is "Sitting in your seat."

And when they ask "And where will I be that you think you'd get my seat?"

Answer that with "What? You don't plan on moving on to bigger and better things, too?"  ;)

Yeah, I don't know who comes up with these "standard" interview questions.  If you really have a 5 year plan the surest way to thwart it is to tell someone what it is.  So they just want to get an idea how you lie.  I could understand it if applying for a position in Sales.  :)  Otherwise what's the point?
