3. What do you like most about your job? Explain. If you are not currently employed, what has been your favorite job that you’ve had in the past? Explain.
I worked as a Software Developer. Well, the first thing that I like about my job is that, it is really challenging. Each day I go to the office, we start with discussions which deal about addressing some challenging issues. Believe me, more than money, a software engineer is concerned about the quality of work he/she does. My team consists of an amazing set of people, who are really dedicated and passionate about their work. When the entire team puts all their heart into the work at hand, you’ll also start investing the same amount of interest/passion/dedication into the work.

I want to be a certified developer in my career and wants to take up the critical tasks which I have never came across for such tasks. I want to build my career in such a way that I can be the senior most developer of the company and can handle the meetings from the clients and solve the problems which may arise in any situations.
5. Where would you like to be in your career in 5 years? In 10 years? In 15 years?
Well, in five years I hope to have moved into a position very much like this one, but with more of an impact on the department’s big-picture development. I’m not sure about what that will be, but I’m up for a challenge. In ten years, I’d like to find myself in a position to mentor others in the field, putting my experience to use in ways that help others achieve what I’ve attained.
