Looking for a new job

Post by hootabelle98 » Fri Jun 19, 2020 2:22 pm

Hi there,

I have been in the industry a long time and i have been working for a centre for just under three years, The director has been the same which has been good but the educational leaders they have had 4 different ones in the past 2 years. Any way my workplace has been very up and down in supporting staff and lately i just don't feel supported or the issues i have i can't go to my director with.

I have a job interview on Monday at a very brand new centre and i am just curious what other people have said about leaving their workplace to get a new.
job. I don't want to bag the centre i am currently at as i don't want to look like im causing trouble.

what have other people said when they have changed jobs.

any help appreciated

Hi!

Yes, completely understandable! It's a shame that you feel your centre is not supporting you and that you can't speak to your Director about your issues. I agree it's time to move on...

You're right you shouldn't bag the centre, you never know in the future that you may need to contact them again so no matter how bad things get or how frustrated you are with the centre always say positive things.

Some excuses include:

“I reevaluated my goals and am looking for other employment opportunities.”
“I am currently looking for a position better matched to my skills and long-term goals.”
“I am looking for a position within a company where I can contribute and grow.”
“Although it was a good job, I felt as though I had learned everything I could and wanted to move on to a new centre where I can continue to grow professionally.”

Hope this helps!

Good Luck!!

So my interview went extremely well and I am pretty sure I am in the running to get the job.

So they want me to come in for a trial on Friday for a few hours which they said they would pay me plus the director gave me lots of forms to fill out.

The position I would have is being a third educator in nursery room and both educators have their diploma. I'm really excited as I got on so well with the director and the center only opened in January.
