One of my friends used to work in the field of HR. He was forced to resign due to internal politics in the organization. Now he is looking for other opportunities. In every interview, he is facing the same question that ''why he has resigned without getting other opportunities?'' Request you all to comment on these which will be the best answer during the interview, which would not be negative for the interviewer or he should provide an excuse.

Just say that the job was no longer challenging, and that your skills and experience were not being utilised to optimum advantage. So it was time to seek a new position where you could take on new challenges and develop new skills. You need to word that your own way.

Under no circumstances mention being forced to resign or office politics. That is irrelevant and a red flag to potential employers. You need to be positive and pitch the idea that moving to a new job will benefit a potential employer. So the emphasis has to be on skills and experience and WHAT YOU CAN BRING to a new employer in terms of helping their organisation move forward.

The key to this is moving the conversation away from the reason for leaving. You have to MANAGE the interview and keep the interviewer focussed solely on what you have to offer.

If he mentiones that his experiences were not being utilised, so how he can show that he is experienced in this field for many years and his experiences will not be countable by the employers?
