NOTES: What Is Your Reason for Leaving Your Job?

Giving your reasons for leaving a job helps interviewers determine what satisfaction and engagement at work looks like to you. It can also shed light on what your long-term career plan is and what you want to get out of a new role.

1. More responsibility and better career growth. Wanting to develop your skills can be one. Give examples of the kinds of skills you want to build on and tangible ways you’d like to go about doing it.

2. A career change. A new direction professionally, to find interesting and meaningful work.

3. Company reorganization. It’s helpful to give some examples as to why the new structure isn’t working for you. And what you’ve done to try and improve things and what you’d change. 

4. Better work-life balance. Try and focus on what you’re seeking for in the long term, whether it’s remote work, a four-day work week or flexible hours.

5. Relocation. Explain why you’re making the move.

Avoid launching into a barrage of complaints about your former workplace, colleagues or manager.
