i’m applying for a job and obviously it’s a right ballache
on the form i have to give a reason for leaving my current job (tho i haven’t left). my current job is a repetitive entry level job (tho the people are lovely and i like the organisation i work for), i’m applying for this one cos it’s a much better one - better pay, more varied. basically i have much much more to offer an employer than i am currently doing, how do i word that?
i left a job in Feb for a massive list of different reasons. i was out of a ‘real’ job for three months, during which time i worked on a music project. i did technically get paid a little,do i add that to the ‘work history’ section of the application so there’s not just a gap?
and is it reasonable to put my reason for leaving the job as being that i wanted to do music for a few months?
there’s a bit where i can say what dates i can’t make an interview. i’m going to boomtown so have booked thursday-tuesday off work (got a coach+festival ticket so i can only arrive on the coach on thursday morning). do i just say i can’t make those dates? i mean i guess i could make an interview on the monday or tuesday if i really had to… but it would be a real shame and i probably wouldn’t be in peak condition
any advice appreciated
