gonna talk with you about one of those
tough interview questions you know
there's so many different ways that
people can answer this I just want to
give you the crux of a good way to
answer it so the question is so what are
you looking for in the next firm that
you join a job that you take what's
gonna be most important to you that firm

that you could talk about but you start
off by talking about I want to join a
firm where I can feel successful and be
successful where I can help to drive the
organization where I can help and that's
obviously through a leadership role
where I can support the leadership if
you're honest and fro in accomplishing
the objectives I want to feel like I'm
making a contribution the success of the
firm and then I am successful now as
well no I don't want to ignore the fact
that I'm looking for them for a decent
compensation but let's assume that
that's taken care of you know ultimately
I want to feel like I'm going to get
challenged that I have an environment
that I can be successful with I can
drive the success of the organization or
support the success of the organization
or the efforts for success in the
organization depending upon the level
that you're at within the therm this
kind of an answer helps to move the ball
forward toward the goal line because
again you can't make it seem like you're
you know
looking around then just trying to pull
something out of your butt you have to
be able to state it with conviction so
always think you know I remember in
college I had to read a book by Max
Weber called the the Protestant ethic
and the summarized what it was you know

want to work hard I want to get ahead
