Hi Abhishek

Interviewer is looking for a fit between your dreams and his/her reality. All worthwhile jobs require hard work and an attitude of learning.

This question also exposes those with little or no initiative. People who don't plan or take steps to achieve their own personal progress will not be pro-active at work either.

To answer this question smartly it is helpful to gather as much information as you can about the job, the department and their entwined futures as you can. The more information you have, the better you will be able to customize your answer. Do talk about further development of the core skills and professional behaviours.

Hello Abhishek,

This question is a very common open ended question asked by interviewer. This is to gather information about your motivation, attitude, initiation and proactiveness.

You may reply this question by mentioning-

  • certain new technologies that you want to acquire relevant to your current/offered job profile
  • which skills you want to upgrade looking at your the current skillset/knowledge
  • certain soft skills that you want to work upon such as communication, presentation skills

In addition, you may understand the learning and development initiatives of the organisation from the interviewer and then mention that I look forward to learn via these available training programs.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Piyush
