Here are sample interview answers which you can edit to fit your personal experiences and background, with the caveat to be careful how you answer graduate school questions if the position you are interviewing for is a full-time permanent job. Employers aren't interested in candidates who plan on staying short-term when hiring for many permanent positions, so respond accordingly.
- No, I have no plans for graduate school. I'm looking to start my career and progress it with a solid organization. I'm interested in gaining work experience, rather than additional education.
- I would like to go to graduate school, but not just yet. I have been in school for seventeen years straight, and I can really use a break. I would like to enter the workforce and gain real world experience first.
- Yes, I plan to go to graduate school in the future. At the moment, I need a break from school to explore and experience the working world. This knowledge will be useful in a graduate school class, so it benefits myself and peers.
- I plan to work on my graduate degree while working. I will be taking online and night classes at the university of ABC.
