Looking to leave my new job (2 months) as the person that hired me was fired for absolutely no reason and realised the company isn’t at all what it seemed. What should I say if I get asked this in interviews?

Thank you for posting this I am in a very similar position. Personally would say that the person who hired you was fired and the direction of the team was changing from how the role was described to you. The instability made you nervous.

That’s very good actually- and it’s the truth!! Thank you. Let’s see what others say as well

I am leaving my job after 4 months. As long as your next company looks past it and is understanding of the situation, then who really cares? You will probably see another pay bump in the process.

M1, I disagree. Leaving with class and respect is important, no matter the circumstances. Karma can be a b*tch. Better to leave with no regret IMO

Personally, I would try to get a better understanding of the situation: did the fired person have it coming, as in prior mistakes, or is the company in the habit of making peoples lives a hell in order to sell a story of why they were in the right of firing someone ( some realize an employee becomes too expensive and they become creative)

Apparently FB is giving employees the full Thanksgiving week off, so that may also be an obstacle to a timely outcome. How long can I reasonably expect TikTok to wait?
