I recently interviewed with afor an and I was asked a question that kind of caught me off guard. I was interviewing for a specific team within Healthcare and my interviewer asked me this:
"Are you only interested in this sector of Healthcare or would you be interested in some of our other coverage teams? I ask because we are actively hiring associates for many of our other teams outside of Healthcare."
I tried to play the fence as much as possible and stress that I am very much interested in the specific role within Healthcare but would be open to other sectors should the role be a better fit for me.
Was this the right response? Was he testing my focus and desire for the specific role or could he have been sincere? I forgot to mention that this was a third round interview and not just some first round interview with HR.
