hello! i hope some of you could help me... especially if there are professional recruiters here...
there is no question that i will be honest in answering the question "Why did you leave your previous job?" - what i need help on is "how to construct the answer in a positive way"
so as not to have my application thrown out.
the real reason for leaving my job is because it was a really high-stress cutthroat environment
. really really high stress. the company is one of the leaders in its industry. i was actually warned by some of my friends, i have acquaintances who joined that company and left - and they really have high qualifications, they left because of the cutthroat environment
. after leaving, they joined other companies that fit their personality and they're happy.
how can i construct my answer in a way that won't make me appear that i can't handle stress or pressure? because i can. i'm an achiever since i was a kid. i worked in another multinational company within the same industry before and i did very well, even with all the stress. iba lang talaga yung current company ko, as in iba talaga siya, and hindi lang ako ang nagsasabi. yun nga, i have acquaintances who have very high qualifications and very good employees but they left because it was just too much.
i hope some of you could offer your suggestions... please...
