What are some good answers when a job application asks you the reason for leaving previous positions?


Answer by  TeresaL (150)

You should tell the truth. On a job application it is always best to say exactly what happened. For instance if they do a background check and find out that you lied on any part of the applications, most likely you will probably not be considered for the job. Honesty is one thing most employers want in their employees.

There are a lot of good answers. Maybe you moved away from the area. Maybe you needed a position with more growth. Perhaps you felt that your skills could be better used and developed in another field. What you don't want to say is anything negative about the company or its managers.
