Tricky interview question(s) – How do you define success?

Interview question(s) that are designed to trick you. ( HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS? )….Why do they ask this? What makes it tricky? What response are they looking for?

Why do they ask this? “Interviewers ask this to see what makes you tick, but to some degree, also to test your mettle,” Taylor says. Your answer gives them insight into your priorities: are you motivated by big paychecks? Being challenged? Learning new skills? “Or,” she asks, “do you take a more personal, individualistic approach to success?”

What makes it tricky? This one is a minefield, since “success” is highly subjective, and even a perfectly reasonable response can be easily misinterpreted, Taylor says. “There’s a fine line between sounding ambitious and appearing as if you’re eyeing the top spot in the office — because you ‘really want to advance and make a difference.'”

What response are they looking for? When questions are broad and leave a lot of room for “a virtual inquisition,” Taylor advises keeping your answers relatively unobjectionable. “Try to define success in a way that relates to the prospective employer, based on what you know from the job description and conversation,” she says. A good response? “Applying my brand expertise to the strategic marketing goals you’ve established for XYZ company, building on your existing success.”

“That’s in contrast to a thinly veiled: ‘Being in your amazing position, thus freeing you up to do way more important things,'” says Taylor. Stay specific, and stay job-related.
