TRAPS: This is another variation on the question, ?If you could, how would you live your life over?? Remember, you?re not going to fall for any such invitations to rewrite person history. You can?t win if you do. BEST ANSWER: You?re generally quite happy with your career progress. Maybe, if you had known something earlier in life (impossible to know at the time, such as the booming growth in a branch in your industry?or the corporate downsizing that would phase out your last job), you might have moved in a certain direction sooner. But all things considered, you take responsibility for where you are, how you?ve gotten there, where you are going?and you harbor no regrets
If you have worked many years for the same company, this is an opportunity to hit it out of the park. One of the fasted ways to get ahead in a career is to quit a job for one with better pay. Do this enough times and you are making top dollar. Your answer should be, "I suppose I could have quit to find a better paying position, but since I'd always been well compensated, I was never tempted."
