I am planning on changing my career to internet industry (server-side development work).
Actually my career changing reason is lots of challenges , chances and good career development in internet industry.I have learned a lot technical knowledge related to server-side development work in my spare time, I found I also have great interest in it.
background: I have done 2 jobs now,1st job is about HW related software development work.(windows platform) (for one year and a half)
current job is some application development work(which requires a little HW knowledge ) under linux.(I have worked in this position one more year now )
actually the situation is the job I have done in the past to specifically prepare for the job I am being interviewed for.
So if I say the leaving reason for current job honestly when I am in a interview held by a internet company, is there anything not well-considered?
- Will the interviewer think my loyalty is bad for current company?
Because I work for current job just for my career change to internet industry, this maybe leave the interviewer a bad impression.
- So obviously I didn't tell the real thought for leaving my 1st job to my current company, the interviewer can infer that I have lied to my current company for the reason leaving my 1st job .
I am concerned about the 2 issues I list above.
Is there any better way to explain the reason I leave my current job? (I really want to join in the internet industry.)
I am a foreigner, I plan to apply job in US. I know little about how Americans deal with this.
