The question is meant to expose the ones who look only for personal gratification from a role (money, status, esteem, excitement, glamour) rather than seeking opportunities to make best possible use of their effort, skills and experience, in contributing to the success of the organization.
The question is a potential trap for people who are more concerned with what they get out of a job rather than what they put into it. Employers do not really want to recruit gratification- orientated people as they are neither self-starting nor self-motivating.
What Surabhi has mentioned in her response is absolutely right. The response to that question should be a resounding 'YES'. And you should complete it by saying that "doing the best I can for my job is my priority and if it entails relocation; I am prepared for the same!"
This is the question to test your confidence also in continuation with above reply of expert.
You can say YES because it shows that you are ready to take new responsibilities also as and when required. In sales this is the question generally ask by the interviewer.
your reply also indicate about your home sickness. so you can say YES
Relocation is a threat-confidence question to check how adaptive are you in respect of your environment.
As you should be aware of the fact as you grow in your work/tea, designation and promotions are given with your performance you would be required to travel and also contribute to new projects of the organization.
The idea behind this question asked by any recruiter is to make sure not to hire any person who would leave later post training few months in the system in the context of relocation.
Also, relocation depends upon numerous factors, such as
Make sure you do your homework about the organization and the profile you will be interviewed for.
Remember don't just say yes, out of desperation to join, think about your decision, talk to others in case you have confusion about this.
There is no yes or NO to this question. It about you willing to take a confident decision in the chosen line of work.
If you're willing to explore different career opportunities, then you could say "yes" to this question. You just need to be sure that you're really up to it. Relocating is not a joke, so better think it over. Don't worry about spending time in answering this, interviewer's know it' rel="nofollow"s a difficult question to answer.
In order to post replies to the question: "How to respond to “Would you be willing to relocate if required” during interview"
