Interview Answer

1 Answer


As you know, jobs are scarce in the current economic environment and I'm uncomfortable with the uncertain revenue stream that consulting is currently providing. From what we discussed, it sounds like I will be busy for at least a year or two so I would approach the position as a long-term project. After I have improved the department to my satisfaction, then we could discuss if there is a further role for me at the company. If the role involves simply becoming a caretaker of the department, I expect that one of my employees would have been integrated and trained sell enough to step up and fill that role and I could move on to assisting the company in more strategic areas or we could simply say "I wish you well" and I would move on to my next challenge.
