What to Tell Interviewers When You Bailed Because of Your BossWritten by Bonnie Lowe
You're at a job interview. You're doing great, answering questions left and right. You're enthusiastic, upbeat, confident. Then they ask, "Why did you leave your last job?"
An image of your former boss, red-faced and screaming, pops into your head. He was such a jerk! You desperately want to vent your frustrations and tell them why you HAD to quit, but you hesitate, thinking... is honesty best policy in THIS situation?
Have you ever heard that saying, "Discretion is better part of valor?" It applies here.
There's no better way to present yourself as a whiner than to complain about a former boss or job. Even if you left a job because your boss was an egomaniac who took credit for all of your hard work, verbally abused you in front of others, and poisoned plant on your desk, don't say anything bad about him/her during an interview. If you do, interviewer may think YOU have a problem with authority or canít get along with others. After all, they don't know you. And as authority figures, they may more easily identify with your maligned former boss than with you. It's best not to count on them believing YOUR side of story, even if it IS truth.
So instead of saying "My boss was an incompetent idiot," consider one of following responses, whichever fits your particular situation best. Remember to stay positive and enthusiastic.
