1. describe your current role 2. why do you think you are a good fit for the role 3. what's your plan for the next 5 years

2 Answers

Please don't ask the question of what's the plan for the next 5 years for a 12 months contract role hired from an agancy and the company has a reputation of not extending contractor's role. The obvious answer to that question is "to be made permanent". This question shows little intelligence the hiring manager has. Very negative experience.

There's quite an extended back and forth in actual interviews for questions like this, so nothing quite like real practice.
