As a follow-up to the interview question "What are your goals for the future?" the interviewer will often ask how you plan on achieving those goals. A good answer to this question will speak specifically about what you are going to accomplish and how you are going to accomplish it. Examples of good responses include:
  • I plan on gaining additional skills by taking related classes and continuing my involvement with a variety of professional associations.
  • I noticed that XYZ company (the company you are interviewing with) provides in-house training for employees and I would certainly be interested in taking classes that would be relevant.
  • I will continue my professional development my participating in conferences, attending seminars, and continuing my education.
