This is during interviews.
I'm presently employed and it's not a good fit for various reasons. I'd like to work at something more interesting, challenging, with project work as time goes on versus always doing grunt work (e.g. set up computers) or help desk calls, I just don't want to do only grunt work all the time.
I was outsourced from my previous job after 18+ years, then right after unemployment ended I had to take the first only job that was offered, the one I'm in now.
I'm trying to figure out how to explain the differences between the two positions, e.g. why the change of jobs, why significantly fewer lines on my resume for the current job, etc.
My current job looks really small/insignificant compared to my previous job, how to deal with this without being negative?? I'm not doing very much in my new job that I didn't already do in my previous job.
I have the current gig on my resume because I am indeed employed, which hopefully is still a good thing while seeking employment??
I did say in an interview the honest response that I was outsourced, unemployment ended and I took this position to become employed for a new different experience, and I have no idea how that was received, other than they didn't hire me.
Most of my cover letter (vs. resume) refers to work I did in my previous job, there's a lot more to talk about, current gig not so much.
Thank you, Tom
