I work as a Software Engineer (programmer), kinda in a senior level but not in paper, like I still have a senior or supervisor.
There were multiple companies which got interested in me and they didn't seem interested at all to the reason why I'm looking for a new job even though I've been in my current job for only 2 months.
BUT there was one company that really caught me off guard when the interviewer asked me a couple of times the reason why I'm leaving my job.
Will saying I don't fit the company's culture suffice?
I know saying
it's personal reasons will get me more into trouble. Like the interviewer would ask more follow-up questions. I just wanna leave my job.
- I just wanna leave my job.
- I can't handle my seemingly hot-headed lead.
- I just don't meet the company's expectation.
- Related to #2, just hours ago, the lead, while being disappointed with me, he said that I'm very well paid. (of course he knows my rate).
p.s. Current full-time job is merely a contractual, means it's like I'm working as a freelancer but in full-time.
