Few things are as disruptive to a team as having someone join the company in a full-time position only to move on 3 months later. If someone is learning at work then they’re much more likely to stick around. That’s why this is such a great interview question. Use it to double-check that your job description and the day-to-day realities line up well with how the new hire wants to grow professionally. Alignment here can help you find the perfect candidate and keep you from having to hire again for the same position just a few months down the road.
