This question has always bothered me, because I don't know why the
interviewers ask it. On the one hand, they mak ask to see if I'm
ambitious. On the other hand, they may want to know if I'm worth the
effort of fitting into their writing team if I plan on moving on within
five years. For all I know, there may be other reasons to ask it, too.
