Before you were hired, there was a labelscar.

In case you wonder what a labelscar is, as you may see on this article’s image, it’s when a sign is taken off from a building, and the marks still show in the shape of the old sign.
When extrapolating this term to recruiting, the author suggests to ask the following question when being interviewed: “Why is the role open?”
I like this suggestion. This question can help you understand if the role will come with some “scars”, caused by the hiring manager, a faulty business process or another factor.
