Another addition to the killer interview questions collection: Does your current employer know you’re looking for work?.

This question is apparently asked by Citrix at interviews, according to a roundup of questions from Business Insider. As a possible answer, it suggests “My current employer knows that I work hard, that I’m ambitious, and am looking to advance my career.”
While this is a decent response, it invites a further and potentially trickier question: “Why can’t you advance with your current employer?” You need to balance this one carefully: you don’t want to appear disloyal, but nor do you want to appear unwilling to advance.
How would you answer the question?
