In this instance, the interviewer is looking to find out what makes you tick, and what you really value. This question is a tricky one as both are hugely important.
Show that you are aware of the benefits of both and that you understand that you need to be comfortable working in either scenario.
Often, employers will ask questions about your personal life to get an insight into your personality, and to gauge how well you are likely to fit in with their existing employees.
Although this question is relatively informal, make sure your answer is sensible.
Instead, contextualise your ambitions to fit in with the role and company as this will show the interviewer that you are committed and driven.
The worst thing to do when faced with this question is to speak about your current employer or colleagues in a negative way.
You may be familiar with the expression ‘Fail to prepare, prepare to fail’- this could not be more true when it comes to interviews!
