    • Answering the Interview Question: Why Are You Leaving Your Current Job/Company?

      How honest is too honest? This interview is going quite well. You’re pretty sure you’ve aced every question, and you can really see yourself working at this company. But then your interviewer turns to you, smiles, and asks the dreaded question: “One last question before you go: Why are you leaving your position at XYZ company?” Your heart starts beating a mile a minute. Why are they asking this? Should you tell them your manager is terrible? Should you mention the toxic work culture? Maybe that’s not even the problem, and all you want is a change of pace—is that answer too boring? If this situation sounds familiar, you’re not alone. In a recent Job Journey survey, 13% of respondents wanted help with this question. And it’s easy to see why—there are too many ways to answer it.

Maybe you had a child and decided to stay at home fulltime to take care of them. Perhaps you were taking care of a sick friend or family member.

    • Boss Types, Part 1: The Bad, the Worse, and the Ugly

      There are 7.7 billion people in the world. Each one of them with their own values, culture, hopes and dreams. And some of those 7.7 billion people are bosses, each one of them different and unique. And unique isn’t always a good thing. Some bosses just aren’t that great. They come to work late, yell at employees, and everyone wonders how they got their position. They prioritize their own needs above those of the group, causing bad blood and major conflict. Here at Job Journey we’ve had more than a few people write in with horror stories about their bosses, as well as a few messages about how amazing some bosses can be. We thought we’d start off by creating archetypes for a few of the bad bosses out there. See anyone you recognize? The Polite People Pleaser (PPP) The PPP isn’t a bad person. But they have a tendency to avoid doing what actually needs to be done. If a person in a different department misses a deadline, they …
