How to Answer The Interview Question Why Did You Leave Your Last Job?
A dreaded question for many! When answering this question never give a negative answer. “I did not get on with my manager” or “The management did not run the business well” will show you in a negative light and reduce your chance of a job offer. Answer the question positively, emphasising that
you have been looking for a career progression. Start by telling the interviewer what you gained from your last job
“I enjoyed my last job, I quickly learned how to multi-task and prioritise work and over the last 3 years I have seen myself grow. I am now ready to take the next step up the ladder with my career and feel I would suit working for company such as this”
If you were made redundant, let the interviewer know, this is not a negative!
