  1. Agreed. No matter what, you can’t come off as bitter. Even when they probe for the details, I won’t get in to it. I put a SHORT, positive spin on why I left my last job. Then I quickly redirect the conversation back to my qualifications, which is what I’m there to discuss anyway.  It’s a job interview, not an episode of “As The World Turns”. Getting into the weeds about your past situation will make for great gossip once you leave the building, but they will not hire you.
