Over the summer I worked in a bank in a city A and at the end of my placement I was offered a permanent job. The issue is that I want to live in a city B with my partner and as a result I've been looking for jobs in city B instead.
I now have an interview at a bank in city B. If they ask why am I wanting to leave the first bank I worked for and join them would an appropriate answer be because of the location?
I know in most cases they want to hear something flattering about why they are better than their competitor but this would be the honest reason. Does this make me look less keen about the bank itself than I should want though? I also don't want it to come across that I am completely inflexible when it comes to location.
Does anyone have any advice about how I should approach such a question and whether I should mention/avoid mentioning that my main reason is because of location?
