Interview Question:  I see from your resume that you have changed jobs very frequently?  Is there any reason for this?



Interview Answer Framework:

This is a tricky situation to manage if you have changed jobs frequently since most companies like stable employees.  The reason for your switching jobs should be a valid reason or should atleast sound like a valid reason.    You must come prepared with confident answers to this question if you have switched jobs quite frequently.

Some good ways answer this question are:

  • Having to care of domestic demands / family pressures / spousal constraints
  • Blame it on youth
  • Professional growth was so quick that it required you to seek new opportunities
  • Trying out different opportunities to understand what is the best fit for you
  • Company shutdowns / Location changes / Lay-offs


Explain why this time (this job) it will be different
Explain what you have learnt at each of these jobs and why it is an asset
