If you decide to stay in your current job profile what do you think you can achieve in the coming years? Answer: There are times when the same question is asked in various ways and this is one such type. This is another way of asking your short term goal.

The highs have encouraged me while the lows have taught me to learn from my mistakes. I believe that it is not just the time you spent in gaining experience but the challenges that you face.
