Why would an interviewer ask you this question?

The interviewer is looking to see if you have goals and dreams, and not just wanting to settle. They are looking to see whether or not the job you are applying for is potentially a good match for your skills and personality and what you are seeking in your life. If it is not, they might recommend another position in the company that may be more suited for you that you were unaware of.
