When on an interview and addressing something that may be perceived as a negative, consider using the "sandwich method".


Start with a positive statement, sandwich in the potential negative, and end on another positive statement.


Interviewer: "So why are you looking to make a move?"


You: "I have very much enjoyed my time at XYZ Company where we accomplish remarkable outcomes daily and they allow me to develop myself professionally.


Although my time there has been amazing, I have reached a point where I may have hit a ceiling and am actively seeking new and exciting challenges.


During my tenure, I was able to play an integral role in increasing revenue 25% and I learned many valuable skills that I can leverage here at ABC Company, if given the opportunity."
