Dear Sir, if one person leave his recent job due to misbehavior or rude behavior of his boss, what should he say reason of leaving recent job during new interview ?? Please answer. Regards

Well Normally you need to tell to people what they want to hear...for eg. in an Interview, HR people still ask the same questions used since 2 decades ago and are so happy hearing the same standard replies no matter even if there doesnt exist an iota of thruth as HR Interview Q&As are easily available.

So coming back to your question the answer would be "Since I was looking at Growth Opportunities, wherein I could handle greater responsibilities somewhere down the line I felt like I needed to explore new opportunities which would enrich me with new challenges and experiences. Nevertheless I am looking for something that would help me progress in my career and be in sync with my profile at the same time"

The Normal words people like to hear is "GROWTH", "MEDICAL ISSUE" "SICKNESS & BED REST" "SELF SABBATICAL" "TAKING TIME OUT FOR SORTING PERSONAL/FAMILY ISSUES"

if you want to speak the thruth (or maybe in mind in a lighter vein) it wud b as...."I had this hitler kind of indian HARI SADU type of a Boss who think never end of himself and believes he is the King and myself as a poor peasant asking him for alms....so one day I decided to get rid of the daily begging for mercy and put the seed of self respect in me to grow. Thereby since I could not KICK him...the only option i had was the Kick the Job with him...so I did the latter. Now I want a better boss, the one who has worked his way up & is a guide to me...someone who sees himself as an employee too....If you have such people then be assured I would work for your company for sure"

being an HR myself I know one thing....make candidates undergo any tests (even lie-detector polygraph)...there is no hard and fast rule to select them, retain them or remove them.....rather have a informal relaxed discussion acknowledging that its the NEED which meets the DEED and you can judge candidates better!...........rgrds

Dear,
It is always good to tell the truth, if you are not inf fault and still harressed by Boss. Say Frankly in the Interview, no need to worry, you qualification, experience and atttitiude. If we are clear and right we need not have to hide.
I just did the same thing. My Boss was behaving like Hari Sadu, I was looking for opportunity and got one. Clearly in the interview itself i have told the reason of leaving the previous job. So Always try to tell truth i will hurt initally but would be good forever.

In actual, you have to tell the truth, frankly. But as said by our member friends above, though people expect frankness, they cannot digest the same, if something negative. The frankness / truth would be delicious, only if it is positive or good. So, in interviews you should have to get prepared with masala which should be tasteful and like good music to the ears and impressive to the hearts and minds. Hope you got it...
All the very best....

Dear Nabanita,
An interview is your oppurtunity to highlight your strengths and offering to a company for a future role. Hence please concentrate on the same. Under any circumstances , please aviod bad mouthing ex-employer or an ex-boss. This gives a very wrong expression and shows low professionalism. Even if you are tricked into dicussing any scam , please give the best reply without falling for it .
It not about sugar-coated answers, but how you can focus on your strenghts . The best way is to prepare yourself as per the role you are applying, suppose you are currently in a recruitment based role, and you have applied for a generalist or a Payroll role. Share how this role can add to the learnings your are looking forward to . And how your past experience have build you to perform in this future role. The current role will not allow you to move into this area, hence it makes sense for you to take up a new job.
Wish you all the best .
Regards,

Never ever talk about ex-bosses or managers. In the business community you do not know who knows who and words can come back to bite you in the future.
Even if you were treated badly, let it go. Do not damage your future career prospects by referring to it.
Focus solely on your strengths and and future goals. As others have pointed out, if pressed for reasons for leaving your previous job, it is sufficient to stay that you had achieved all you could in that position and that it was time to move to a new company offering greater challenges and a place where you could build on your skills and move up.
Hope that helps.

Hey Hold on....this is getting very complicated...
Stick to the basics...face the interview with a positive approach, leaving all those shit with Hari Sadu.
In interview u gonna tell / assure for the growth of the company thats y de r hiring you...
U wanna get rid of the shit frm Hari Sadu as soon as possible...ain`t u ? Then y r u opening it in front of strangers, forcing them all to smell.... Trust me , once u open it, u will hv to live with this old shit for ever in this new firm as well. Guess what , ur new employer wont b payin u for long due to obvious reasons.
Cheers

I believe taliking truth at the exit interview is not at all right as it may sound right or wrong or even offensive but its ever green truth that in a country like ours where there is no justice or no care for the basic human rights at all is due to our lack of SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY BUT I ALSO DID NOT SPEAK OUT THE TRUTH BECAUSE OF MY OWN EXPERIENCE THAT THE HR IS JUST A SLAVE DISPLAY OF THE MANAGEMENT OR THE SLES HEADS NOTHING ELSE .HR IN INDIA IS NOT AN INDEPENDENT DISPLAY AT ALL.
Hence please understand
Fix the problem, not the blame.
A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.

The best option is to be honest. But have good reasons to justify your misbehavior or rudeness towards your previous boss. Don't lie. Honesty is one thing most employers appreciate in candidates.
