When asked, “Why do you want to leave your company, many job seekers have trouble answering. To give you some help, the KAS Placement Los Angeles recruiters have some answers:

1. Our balance sheet is hurting, cash flow is hurting, the expenses are too high and that stresses people out and when people are stressed, they don’t perform well. This is not changing b/c the company keeps spending on aspects that are not generating revenue.

– There is always money to be had if you look in the right places and you do have to get to some of the wrong places to get there, but once you hit a “wrong place” you have to look at it as one step closer to a solution rather than a stagnation. There is no substitute for profit.

2. The best companies encourage team work and candor. Many times, the culture is just individualized, thus no good ideas are thrown around and there’s no feedback on how everyone’s doing.

3. There’s no substitute for hard work; it solves problems and achieves goals. Right now, I need profit driven company to work at which realizes this.

– The best companies look at setbacks as temporary and challenges to be overcome.

4. Our selling style has been too aggressive lately and this is based on our cash flow shortage which is hurting management of the sales cycle and thinking about what the clients rather than what we need as a company which is feeding our balance sheet asap.

– Sales is about customer service and meeting needs and that’s what closes deals.

– Segment your customers into 3 lists:

“A” – customers who take up the most time, but pay the most bills for you. They’re strategically and financially critical to your business.

“B” – customers who pay their bill on time, you don’t hear from much, but they don’t demand too much.

“C” – doesn’t have the most money, but needs the most attention and doesn’t pay on time.

While you want to remember to only use these when they are accurate, using them will only make you interview better.
