I’ve been at a startup for 6 months and feel like I want to quit. What should I state in interviews as the reason for looking into a new position? The company is not getting any new customers and I don’t believe in the CEO’s management style or vision…

I think what you stated here is a good start. The second statement is better than the first. Keep it focused on you and less on the company so you don’t build bad rep. But be prepared to answer the opposite, what kind of ceo management style do you like? What do you think you like about the new companies vision?

You are looking for a company you can grow with.

Explain that the actual scope of the job did not match or align with the job description nor was it fully explained and outline within the hire process thus leading you to seek for a different job opportunity.

You can also say that the company is doing an organization restructure that is essentially will not be funded to date X

Or you can use my favorite: my current position is a contract position where I was brought on as an * interim * director to facilitate the business needs.

Did a first interview with hr rep, went very well. she set up the hiring manager meeting for a few days later. Met with the manager.

This is set up Tuesday.
Why do you think the manager wants to meet again? Good? Bad? I felt great about the interview when we ended.
