What interview response will fire you out in a job interview?

by Laliebeth Petancio

You are set for a job interview. You have researched well about the company and how you can contribute to their success.

You’ve updated your CV and have dry run yourself in front of the mirror answering common interview questions.

You are now up to your nerve fit-tailored for this stage in your career challenge, the interview.

Comes the day that you have to face the boss of the company and here’s your chance to prove you are worth accepting for the position you have applied for.

How do you see yourself in 5 years?

With confidence in your heart you utter,

”In five years, I see myself managing my own company”.

The prospect employer choked a moment and just replied, ”We will call you if we feel needing you”.


This happens to Arch. Rodel F. Ayala, who after many years of leaping from one country to another and from a technical staff to a project manager, he finds his work status is becoming boring.

”The challenges are there, time pressures and a lot other circumstances”, he exclaimed saying that even if he changes his company, he will land a similar position- as project manager.

Arch. Ayala resigned from his job in 2016, got rejected in an interview and in the same year fulfilled a mission for himself to become a managing partner of an international company, the ROHZ Group of Companies.
