Dear community, I have one interview question that I would like to seek advice: why did you leave your last job?
I am currently preparing the application of consulting firms in the US, after staying just several months in my last role. The reason I left the job was mainly due to my supervisor who I didn't work along well together. I'd like to hear any advice and also views on below replies:
(1) I was not the best fit with my boss (a more direct answer but could sound very negative? What are the typical reactions of interviewers if they've heard this answer? Do they really care why one left a job or they focus more on motivation and case interview?)
(2) Did not fit into the corporate or team culture (sounds a bit vague and also negative?)
(3) I wanted to switch function since the previous function provides less learning opportunity. The skillsets are capped and not related to consulting. So I decided to quit the job and prepare for consulting, an area that I really enjoy. (not sure whether quitting job to prepare for consulting sounds persuasive...maybe some risk-takers might do the same thing?)
Thanks for your advice!
