You don’t have to commute to work, you can wear whatever you want, and you might have a bit more leeway in setting your own schedule. However, there are definite disadvantages as well. And one of those is working for a difficult boss. Some managers might be great at managing their team in the workplace, but terrible at communicating remotely.

Interviews are stressful because job applicants don’t always know what to expect. That’s where Answering the Interview Question comes in.

Why Are You Leaving Your Current Job/Company? Your answer will vary depending on your own reasons for leaving your last or current job, but these answers are a good starting point. “There weren’t many opportunities for advancement at XYZ company, and I’m ready to move on to the next phase of my career.” You might be tempted to say something like “they wouldn’t ever give me a promotion so I quit,” but that doesn’t reflect very well on you as an employee.
