Stupid questions in job interviews (1 of many)

The question: “Where do you see yourself in 5 years? ” does not make any sense.

I hope your offer is interesting enough so that my job description, 5 years from now,  will include several tasks and competencies that do not even exist today.

And that is where I see myself in 5 years, in your company: Doing something that CAN’T BE DESCRIBED TODAY!

I am pretty sure, it will take less than two years anyway for the “never saw that coming” to emerge in the performance indicators.

  1. Just as FYI, my standard answer, is:
    Assuming you are not giving me a contract just for five years, my answer is valid for 3 and to 10 years also:
    I know I’ll be working hard on something exciting, alongside smart and committed people for great customers and satisfied users.
    I’ve seen so much change, and I have evolved through so many roles, to make any other assumption.
