|1.||When asked the reason for leaving your current job, never criticize your present firm, boss, or coworkers. Instead, you can always emphasize your motivation for future career growth.|
|2.||When discussing skills learned at a previous job, try to connect those skills in some way to the job to which you are currently applying.|

|B:||I very much enjoy working at my current job. I have a lot of respect for my boss and my coworkers and, to my great joy, they also respect me. However, I feel I’ve learned as much as I possibly can. And I’ve contributed a lot to my department.|
|A:||So what do you hope to gain by leaving?|
