How long would you expect to work for us if hired?

Possible Intention:

  • To know if you are seriously thinking of staying long term.

Insights:

  • "I will stay until retire" is a good answer but very hard to believe today.
  • You are not expected to give time period in years or months.
  • Expectation is what you like and will keep you happily going in the organization.

Example Answer:

I am not a person who switches jobs very frequently. I like to do challenging work in technology which will give me pleasure of creating new solutions. I strongly believe that the kind of projects and technology your organization is into, can keep me in high spirits to continue working for longer period.

Anti Pattern:

  • Do not say time period like five years etc. without any justification.
  • Never say till you get challenging work rests with the employing organization.

Interviewer's Interpretation:

  • Display the extra commitment can be regarded as falsity.
  • Some indirect indication of time would be sweet music for interviewer's ears.
