Yeah and I mean, don't advertise the position as temporary? But when you find anybody, don't play the "where do you see yourself in ten years" game. If what you have is a skilled but non-inspiring position, expect to hang onto them until they have greener pastures. We tell our prospective clients that we don't expect them to be with us forever, that we sincerely hope they'll leave with more skills and knowledge than they came with, that they'll give us at least a month's notice when they find something better and that they'll say nice things about us when they leave.
