What is a good explanation if an interviewer asked why I want to do this job which is in a totally different career from which I have been doing in the last 5 years?
I'm currently applying for jobs in automotive mechanic/technician or mechanic but my background I have done in the last 5 years is Massage Therapy. I haven't done interviews in a long time and so far I'm struggling to explain my interest and eagerness in learning a new skill and totally switching careers. Telling people I'm very interested in that field, it was always something I was interested in learning better and I love working with my hands and are interested in learning how things work has so far not been a good enough explanation for the last 2 interviews I have had. Why is it so complicated for those interviewers to understand that some people like to learn new skills or decide to suddenly go into a totally different career? I'm frustrated. #jobsearch #interview #advice #education #careerchange
What motivated you to make that switch??
A) There are jobs with better pay available now
B) I'm looking for better benefits
C) I want to try something completely different
D) I want to get more training/education
E) I want to find an employer who values the same things I do
F) I need more predictable scheduling
G) Other (please share in the comments below)
I'm a very much people person, and have had multiple jobs all with some type of customer service skill. I always love learning new things. #careerchange
