Industries and Professions

Industries refer to the production of economic goods – materials or services – in an economy. Industries are divided into four sectors: primary (such as farming), secondary (manufacturing), tertiary (medicine) and quaternary (computer programming). Many countries depend on several industries. A profession is a type of career that requires specialized knowledge and often intensive academic preparation. Selecting a profession can be challenging, so learning all you can about professions that interest you is extremely helpful. That is what this category is all about, so ask and answer questions about professions here.

Description of the beach?

A description of the beach could be:

Hot, sandy, beautiful, refreshing

Another could be:

A sun drenched angelic beach. The sunlight glittering on every grain of sand, the beach idyllic, white and fresh. The beautiful, big blue ocean's waves are crashing against the cliffs as you watch the seagulls joyfully fly around in circles in the air. The warm, golden sand runs between your toes with the gentle breeze. As you walk along, you find gorgeous, shiny shells that have been washed into the shore by the rippling of the water.

How do you answer 'Where do you see yourself in five years' in a job interview?

Where do you see yourself:

Here's what the resume advice company Resume Edge recommends as a sample answer to the question, "Where do you see yourself in ten years?"

In ten years, I endeavor to have refined my strategic and client relations skills. I intend to be a leading expert in estate planning. After having proven myself as a senior manager, I hope to help shape the strategic direction of estate planning services. I could do this in any number of official roles. The important thing is that I will continue contributing my abilities in a challenging and rewarding environment.

  • While it is not usually a good idea to try to be a Jim Carey in an interview, depending on how things have gone and who you are dealing with, you might inject a little humor here and ask: "When do you expect to be promoted?" ....or "When are you moving on?... This could easily break the ice. Seriously, you can easily respond that you have no idea as you have no idea what you are capable of so far, although you know it is a lot. Therefore, you want to make sure you are open and flexible to whatever opportunities present themselves. If you actually know what you want to be when you grow up, you could offer to conduct a seminar on how to actuate that.
  • You know when you come to that common situation where someone asks you "Where do you see yourself in five years?" Yea you should call a person on that because that question is silly! You have no idea where you'll be in five years nor should you worry. I mean how depressing can that question actually be? If someone asked me that question five years ago I wouldn't have predicted my life to be like this nor would I have wanted to say my life would be like this, I'm not saying I'm unhappy with my life necessarily its just that in a span of five years a persons likes and dislikes change, the people around them either disappear, reappear, or show up for the first time. The things you once loved could become something you hate or vice versa. Aspirations change and feelings lose their magic. Yes you can say what you'd like to see happen in five years but I'm pretty sure it won't and five years from now when you look back on yourself answering that question you'll probably no longer want the same things. There's always hope but no definite so all you can do is live life like you have those five years to look back on...
  • When an interviewer asks this question, they're asking where you see yourself within a company. They don't want to hear you say, "Well, in five years, I will be married to a handsome European man, touring the South Pacific in our yacht with a mai-tai in my hand." They want something like, "Well, that will depend on my individual performance and on the opportunities I'm presented with, but ideally, I will be..." Even if you're going, "Yeah, like I'll be here in 5 years..." act like you will be. They don't want to hear you saying you'll essentially use them to get where you want, and the minute the opportunity is presented jump ship.
  • Some might think that you should not tell the interviewer that you want to move up the ladder of success, because they will fear that you might replace them or move on to another job. However, most would recommend that you answer with just the opposite: that you do want to be successful. A good manager wants his employees to be successful and grow in their careers because that benefits the whole company. If they don't want this, you don't want to work for them. As for the actual standards of success and specific career paths, they are very different for different people and different industries. It is most important to show that you do want to be successful.
  • Think educationally-- higher degree? certification? Think leadership-- at least one step up from where you are at now.
  • Think about what your goals in life are. Then think about what you are doing now. The answer will be somewhere in between, for example "I want to be the CEO of Microsoft and right now I'm studying towards a degree in computering engineering." In five years time the person would probably be "working with a decent computer company in a high position, looking to move on to greater things".
  • Be ambitious but realistic. If you are applying for a job in the mail room in a large corporation, don't say you are gong to be CEO in 5 years; but try to find out before your interview where a mail room clerk might be promoted to.
  • This is a tricky interview question and definitely something worth thinking about before hand. You should come across as being flexible with strong ideas of several directions you are interested in developing. You should be positive, confident and ambitious but not overly so. Don't say "I want to be doing your job"

Where will you be in five years?

This is a very common job interview question. Think carefully about your plans. Really answer it for yourself, Where do you see yourself in five years? Where do you hope to be?

The interviewer is looking to find out a few things with this question. First, are you the type of person who plans ahead and sets goals? You should be. Second, do your goals match those of the company and the position? Your goals need to fit the career path for the job. They don't want to lose you in a year or two.

How do you answer tough interview questions?

Honestly, but still try and be positive.

Take a second are two to think about what the company is really searching for in an employee and then apply it

Prepare for possible difficult questions by going through your resume and noting any red flag areas that could translate into a difficult job interview question. Stay calm and unflustered and answer in a positive and professional manner. Keep the tone of your voice non-defensive and use body language that gives the message that you are comfortable and confident.

The job interview is your commercial for you. Know what your strong points are and be ready to get them into the interview when you can. Get a book on typical interview questions and see what things might come up. The book will suggest answers. Do not learn them - expect that the interviewer has read the book too and will key into the fact that you're giving a standard response. Instead think what the standard questions could link to in your list of good points and get them out. Practice your potential "spontaneous responses" aloud to make sure they sound good and aren't loaded with tongue twisters etc.


(In this example the applicant gives a brief answer to the question asked but rapidly moves into a discussion of how his training and experience flange up to the job.)

Q: What are your strong points:

A: I like to prepare for any task I undertake. For instance, when I saw your Company needed my skills sets in the XYZ division and had a strong environmental ethic I felt I could offer you ...... because ...

Interviewers ask difficult questions not to get the answer mostly, but to see the candidate's reaction and the confidence level. The related link gives some good answers to difficult questions asked in an interview.

Mental fear of the unknown is often what produces the physical symptoms of nervousness. In addition to preparing yourself physically, you need to prepare yourself mentally. The best way to prepare mentally is to know what may be coming. Fear of the unknown can only exist when there is an unknown. Take the time to understand some of the standards when it comes to interviewing questions.

The following are some of the most difficult questions you will face in the course of your job interviews. Some questions may seem rather simple on the surfacesuch as Tell me about yourselfbut these questions can have a variety of answers. The more open ended the question, the wider the variation in the answers. Once you have become practiced in your interviewing skills, you will find that you can use almost any question as a launching pad for a particular topic or compelling story.

Others are classic interview questions, such as What is your greatest weakness? Questions most people answer improperly. In this case, the standard textbook answer for the greatest weakness question is to provide a veiled positive such as: I work too much. I just work and work and work. Wrong. Either you are lying or, worse yet, you are telling the truth, in which case you define working too much as a weakness and really do not want to work much at all.

To become a beer girl, you must be attractive and over the age of 21. There are certain promotional and marketing agencies that hire girls for Major Beer Companies.

How do you answer 'Where do you see yourself in five years' if your plan has no relation to this job?

When an employer asks this question, they are really asking two separate questions:

1) Do you have goals/dreams/aspirations?

2) Are your goals/dreams/aspirations in line with this company?

With that in mind, you need to decide what about this job IS relevant to your 5-year plan and communicate it.

I would explain how I plan to use this job as a rung in the ladder to other achievements.

By asking this question, employers are basically filtering those employees who have a clear mindset about what they wish to accomplish and by what means i.e a career plan in order to achieve career goals and objective. this question by saying something like " I see myself progressing in my field as well as in the company and learning new skills to the benefit of the company. I believe this job will be very challenging and motivating. I can see many challenges ahead and therefore, I am willing to invest my time learning all aspects of the job towards professional advancement. "
