How to answer the interview question: “Why are you changing jobs?” By Matthew Coppola


This is a common question that employers ask during the interview.

 

The employer doesn’t want someone half-hearted about their decision to change employment.

To be half-hearted means that you are neither here nor there. The main thing is that you come across credible.

When you desire to want to leave your job, there can be many circumstances surrounding your decision. Some of the reasons can be that:

  • You honestly want a job that brings with it new challenges
  • You are searching for better prospects and more opportunities.

But above all, try and avoid saying anything negative about the company or that you had issues and matters unresolved with your superiors or teammates.

Always put other organisations, companies and individuals in a positive light.

Answering the interview question: “How did you get your last position?” By Matthew Coppola


This is a very common question that always tends to come up and often, we can find ourselves unprepared.

Even though this is a small, but straight forward question, an employer, will ask this question because it gives them an understanding of countless different areas.

It helps them to visualise your job search process and what you do to find work and secure employment.

You can interpret this question in two different ways and need to ensure you cover all areas:

Firstly, you need to address how you found your last job, whether if it was through a recruitment agency, head-hunted, etc.

Secondly, you need to address how you got the job – how you persuaded your current employer that you were the best person for the position. A career is a pathway, a measure of your success in your field of expertise. It’s viewed differently to ‘a job’. A job is something that is more of a means to an end. A task/activity/project that needs to be performed. A career is something more, it can be multiple jobs but on the same path to maybe a promotion or greater industry expertise and skill level to the point that you are possibly leading others.
