Daily Interview Tip

Make sure you have the interviewer's email details so that after the interview ends you can write them a thank you note, so as to reiterate your interest in the role and outline key points discussed and what you think you bring to the table. The best way to respond to, "What are your long range goals?" is to show you are going to be a long term employee. Assure the interviewer that your intention is to stay with the company and to grow in your career within the company. If your response is good and you see positive reaction such as a nod or smile, stop answering. Many applicants ruin a perfectly good answer by continuing.
