Why are you looking for a new job?

TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"I have had my eye out for a new opportunity for some time now. Although I have no direct concerns with my employer on a day to day basis, I cannot see the career trajectory that I need. I would love to join a larger organization like yours with more promising opportunity."
Example #2
"I am looking for a new job because the last position that I held was a maternity leave coverage contract which is now over. I enjoyed that role greatly and am excited to start a similar role but on a permanent basis."
Example #3
"I am ready to lead a team larger than the one I lead now. I have asked my current employer for a raise or transfer to a larger location; however, more tenured people currently hold those roles so they cannot make that happen. I have my eye on steady career growth, which is what's fueling my search at this time."
Example #4
"Currently, I work for a startup, and I am more interested in working for a larger and more established agency where I can learn, work with larger clients, and be mentored by those more knowledgeable than I."
Example #5
"I have been looking for work since graduating with my degree in business administration. I am actively interviewing but am very focused on joining an organization that will set me up for success, right from the start."
Example #6
"I am looking for a new opportunity with less overnight travel requirements. I am happy to travel; however, 20% travel became 60%, and this schedule is tough for my family. I am open to about 25% overnight travel in my next position."
Example #7
"I am looking for a new job after relocating to this city this last month. I am newer to the area but have already met some incredible people. I look forward to making this city my long-term home."
Example #8
"In my current role, there is a very little growth opportunity. The next position in line is held by the lead Health Information Technician 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 would like to expand my horizons."
Example #9
"In my current role there is minimal growth opportunity. One of the owners holds the next position in line, so I truly have reached my peak there. I am very thankful for everything my current company has offered me the past four years; however, I am ready to expand my horizons."
Example #10
"In my current role, there is a 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 would like to expand my horizons."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
