When interviewing for a job, don’t dwell on why you left your last position. It’s better to give a concise problem-cause-solution statement. Example: “An upheaval in our industry changed my role in the company. So I left.” Alternate strategy: Reframe the situation in positive terms, such as, “I have people management skills that were underused.” Above all, keep it short. One of the worst mistakes is taking up time trying to justify what happened.
