Hello everyone,

I have just started a new job about 2 1/2- 3 months ago. Unfortunately, things are not going well on the job and I am seeking to leave.

If I go on an interview, how will I respond to the question: "Why are you looking to leave your present job, especially since you have only been there for less than 6 months?"

All assistance and advice are appreciated.

Thank you,

Marlene

Your response could be "The position that I am employed in was not what I expected and/or was not what was in the job description when I initially applied for it." You could also write the real reason why you are seeking employment. The truth is the best answer. If it is you, then that is a different situation. If it is an employee, respond to the question "Some and/or senior employees that possess tenure tend to purport that they run the business" or something or something along those lines. Hopefully this helps.

They will probably ask you about your strength and weaknesses. How well you can advocate for a client? You will have to give descriptions of what you done on each job and elaborate on the duties.

Always ask about the case load minimum and maximum and how often clients need to be contacted. Ask about team work? Open door policy?

Hope this was helpful!

They may provide you with a case study and ask you to write a report.

I have an upcoming opportunity to crossover from several years of clinical RN experience to Case Management and am not certain that I have a good picture of what that might entail. What does a typical day in the life of a Case Manager consist of? What things can I do to facilitate and strengthen my transition? Could someone please, help?

You could tell them the truth, that this job was not what you expected, and the opportunity to progressive advancement are not available at this time. Your chosen career path, is progressive and you shouldn't be force to remain in the same low level position for a substantial period of time.
