Why do you want to leave your current work place? Your experience seems exciting from your explanations!
Susan: The main reason why I want to leave my current work place is to seek new challenges.
Comment – This is the most realistic reason that everybody knows. It is like in a certain book that all job seekers read. In certain panels, the answer is so basic that it gets some panelist sarcastically smiling.
Austin: I have often admired your company and what it does and I would want to be part of it.
Comment: a panelist would ask whether you have a purpose for yourself ar you are just merely augmenting the organisation purpose. Would you be without a purpose if the organisation did not exist. This response is traditional and was geared to impress the target employers.
Alison: I look forward to a better pay ……….
Comment: This could be the most sincere answer but would mean that a candidate has no other attachment with the company other than a better pay and the acquired competencies.
Dave: The last three years in my employment has been characterized by a lot of market activity. I must appreciate that it made me develop and exercise my abilities in product and business development. We are now relatively stable and back to routine work. At this point I feel underutilized and I would be excited to be part of your ongoing expansion programme.

a) You are not running way from anything
b) You are in control of your career
c) You are know the relevance between your career and the target employers
