How to Answer Difficult Interview Questions (4/4)

When you’re looking for a new job, one of the most common questions you’ll be asked is “Why are you leaving your prior job?” It’s important to answer this question in a way that reflects positively on your professional experience and skills.

The best way to answer this question is to focus on the positive aspects of why you are leaving. Highlight the skills and knowledge that you have gained from your previous position and explain how they will help you in your new role. Be honest about any issues or challenges that led to your decision, but avoid negative language when discussing them. Show that you are excited about the opportunity for growth and development at your new job. Negative language and burning bridges is never the ideal way to navigate this question – it can be difficult to correctly phrase your reasons for leaving, but highlighting things you learned and how it will benefit your new potential role will show an employer you are ready for growth and new challenges.
