Why are you looking for a new job?
Professional Answers Preview
"In my current role there is very little growth opportunity. The next position in line is held by one of the owners so I truly have reached my peak there. I am very thankful for everything my current company has offered me the past 4 years; however, I am ready to expand my horizons."
"Since my company went through a merger, I have been looking for a new role. The quality of production has declined and I am no longer proud to represent the product that is being put out."
"My company is closing its doors. The owner passed away and did not have family interested in keeping it going. His widow decided it would be best to close it, rather than sell and something bad happen to tarnish her late husband's good name."
"I honestly feel as though I made a poor choice by taking this most recent job. I was headhunted for a brand new company and the framework, leadership, and business plan described when they recruited me did not turn out anywhere close to what they'd envisioned or what I'd been sold. Nonetheless, I have stuck it out for a year and learned what I could from the position and the organization, and I feel it is time to move on. Because of my most recent misstep, I am being even more careful about the next move. I want to be sure that I make a solid, informed decision and I feel as though GHI is exactly where I should be for the longterm."
"I've been keeping an eye on your company, and location, for a long time and just recently felt that the perfect position became available and that I am finally ready to make the leap and really take a big step in advancing my career. I don't take the decision lightly, and I am so excited for what is to come. I know that I can learn more and grow faster with your company than any other, and I look forward to that opportunity."
"I am seeking a new opportunity to get closer to home, and into the district I've always wanted to be a part of. In addition, now that my kids are out of elementary school, I can take the position without the conflict of potentially being assigned to their school. This has been the dream position for me for a long time, so now that the stars have aligned, so to speak, I'm ready to jump on the opportunity."
The interviewer wants to be sure that they will be able to meet your needs and not become a repeat of this current desire to leave your job. It's okay to be honest, but be careful not to overshare. It is best if you can focus primarily on your future wish list vs. dwelling on what is going wrong in your current position.
