    Hello TSR

    I am currently in difficult situation where I am in 2nd job which I held for six months. Prior to this I held a role for 2 years. However I wish to pursue a career change but has anyone found any effective reasoning when asked this question in a interview? In terms of holding the position for a short period of time. The real for my decision will cause stop much conflict.

    Welcome your thoughts guys

    Cheers

    If you want to pursue a career change, then tell them that. People are allowed to change careers. Just make sure you have a reason why you want to go into that particular career you are going into, such as that career area being of particular interest to you or more chances of progression etc.

    You didn't enjoy the role? You thought it didn't match your talents? You didn't find it stimulating? Don't know if any of those are helpful.
