I see my self sitting at your place and asking the same question to some one else.....i being a fresher and he being the MD or HR Head of the co.
mba teaches you how to utilize your resource to the optimum level and according to me the most profelic resource is the human resource. if we learn to use it to the fullest we can use to learn any thing as man is the creater of every machine.......so mba in hr.
this one you have to make excuse.......my dad wanted me to be a doctor and at that time i could not auruge with him......so Bsc.....after that i did't got good marks in that n thought llb could be my line as iam good at arguing ......but also din't helped me......last but not the least i saw my frnd doing mba and i like the way he use to do every thing with a solid reseon so i joined mba.......n know when its complete iam a MBA with knowlege of law which helps in forming me the HR Policies of the company.......as they say knowlege is never wasted.
People don't leave the company, people leave people.
My ultimate aim in life is to see a boxing day (the day after chrismas) test match in sydney........reson being i always wanted to be a crickter n wanted to play there now as that can not be done i want to see the match at least with my family and friend......doest mattet even if i have to work on weekends for that.......CHEERS!!!!
i hope that answers your question partlly if not fully......

Normally, interviewers want to see how quick witted you are.So your replies should be prompt and smart.
Now, coming to the specific questions, one probable set of smart answers could be:
1. I would like to see myself in a managerial/senior position in this company.
The interviewer is actually trying to find out if you are stable. So ideally you should show that you are interested in a longer innings in that company. Also ideally it is not good to say that you would like to be in his seat - if he is a senior functionary he may see you as over-ambitious! (Otherwise, he may feel you are a FUTURE threat! After all, he is also a human!!)
2. I find the human aspect as the most challenging - human beings are the most complex creatures and therefore this field is one area which holds my interest. Further, I have a passion for this function.
3.I actually wanted to do my engg followed by mba. But as I couldn't manage a 'merit' seat, I thought I should pursue my graduation and opted for science, which is my second love. Then I took up law as I felt this would help me in the future. MBA was always my area of interest and would have done it irrespective of the qualifications at the degree level.
4.To improve on my career aspects as well as develop my knowledge base.
Never speak ill of your past or present company -that works negatively.
5. I would like to work till 60 or so, then devote most of my time to social and philanthropic causes/issues.
This answer normally indicates that you are a balanced person and not running after money.
Some of the answers given in the earlier posts are also good.

:) BEST ANSWER: Reassure your interviewer that youíre looking to make a long-term commitmentÖthat this position entails exactly what youíre looking to do and what you do extremely well. As for your future, you believe that if you perform each job at hand with excellence, future opportunities will take care of themselves.
Example: ďI am definitely interested in making a long-term commitment to my next position. Judging by what youíve told me about this position, itís exactly what Iím looking for and what I am very well qualified to do. In terms of my future career path, Iím confident that if I do my work with excellence, opportunities will inevitable open up for me. Itís always been that way in my career, and Iím confident Iíll have similar opportunities here.Ē

The interviewer most of the time are not interested in the answers. They would like to see you how you react with the question and they watch your bearings during the period when you are answering. Probably, your voice, intonation and decisiveness are observed. One important point is that you do not give chance to the interviewer :-Pto ask sub questions on the main question. That is the starting point of trouble. One good answer is that 5 years a long period where many things may happen and my growth during the period is directly proporionate to the effort that I put in. Effot is the key...and like that. Do not every say that I would like to take your place etc.,

it was really difficult to read mentle of an interview for an hr position.the main thing is that for a fresher the parameteres for asking questions is diffnt than for a experiencd one.how?
are the freshers r more perceptive in getting the questions being askd to thm or the wavelength of dialogues maintain effectively frm bth th ends.the essence of conducting interview is not to pull a leg of a candidate but an attmpt in making candidate more comfort in his own aura.but interviewer weighs ur calibre and potentials to evaluate ur capacities towards delivering the co.objects.he/she wants to judge u how best u can befit into the shoes of co's requirements.they also test u diffnt parametres of situations (contingencies) where u cud b tested on the curricula.focuss & locus cud b the two parametres on which whole interview is based.for experiencd persons interview is quite easy b'coz the candidate is very fresh & has nt ben exposed to external environment.while with the experienced ones the level of questions framd in a very tricky & cris-cross.and moreover it is focussed on ur whole experiences, so how the person replies depends more or less the conviction, perceptional values, value additions,the attitudinal diffrences workd out. go w a gud mood & moral high, energies to drive away any situation, analytical minds, calculative & the most ultimate is confidence levels within u.
At any point of time any questions cud b thrown it is candidate who has to judge the trajectories of it.Am I true?
Please post replies so that if i hav mistakn i wud correct myself.
