My current employment has become overwhelmingly toxic since hiring a new manager. Dealing w/ daily inappropriate sexual remarks, a coworker that doesn't like to keep his hands to himself, and the manager laughs about it. I work for a well known family that is a huge influence in the local job market I'm ready to move on. Any advice on how to explain in an interview the reason why I am pursuing employment elsewhere without sounding like a liability or creating an enemy?

On an additional remark I'm in my junior year of college and notnquite near where I was hoping to be before leaving my current employment, so I am pursuing related jobs with equal pay which is few and far between. Until I complete my Bachelor's and show progress towards my Master's degree which will open up a wider amount of job availability.

I feel for you... that's an awful environment to work in. First, I wouldn't offer any explanation unless the hiring manager asks. If they do ask why you're leaving, instead of explaining why you're leaving focus on the culture you are looking for.... Interviewer: "Why are you pursuing employment elsewhere?" You: "I'm looking for a culture/work environment that supports my career goals, is encouraging, inclusive..." Every time I've been in this situation and responded that way, the interviewer was happy with my response and moved onto the next question. I hope that was helpful. Good luck!

Im so sorry to hear this! I dont have a solution to your problem but regrading your question on how to explain it while interviewing, you dont, you say that you’re looking for more growth opportunities and tell some points that will show that you are really interested in this new company and job

Thank you both on your insight, I've a horrible habit of over explaining myself oftentimes. I've been on two interviews and got turned down for the job on both occasions. I called looking for some insight on why I was passed over with no hard feelings they simply explained that they called my previous employer to ask if it was okay to hire me that they loved me in the interview process and would have loved to bring me on board but my current employer said absolutely not I was too valuable to loose. At which time I was pulled into a meeting and told things are going to change around there. I'm not holding my breath I've heard this before. I can only hope it does become better around there, as it seems I am stuck there for awhile longer. Side note I work in a heavily male dominated field so women in this industry are thick skinned and mean as a snake you have to be because you complain you become a liability and you'll get blacklisted faster than you can blink. As the industry inside joke goes you got to have mean skills, a strong sense of humor, and a good right hook.

How do you politely turn down a job offer or back out of interview at last step without burning bridges? After meeting the hiring manager and stakeholders I don’t think we’re a good fit. This job also requires relocation. I don’t want to take a job and uproot my life for something that isn’t the right fit. I’m currently unemployed so feeling a bit desperate but also don’t want to move for something that isn’t right. Thanks!

Have an offer with McKinsey & Company. Gave notice at Deloitte and my PPMD has set up time for Discussion with a subject of possible negotiation. I love my team and work at Deloitte. My reasons to interview at Mckinsey were comp, exposure to senior client leadership, exit opps and because its Mck. Now i am just rethinking because of option partner might give in terms of comp.

It’s the most populous state so clearly that hasn’t deterred 40 million people. But I don’t understand why people keep telling me it’s a bad idea?
