“Being positive does not mean ignoring the negative. Being positive means overcoming the negative.”
In interview is often your first and only chance to make a lasting impression when going through a career change. Often times you are limited with the amount of time you have to impress your potential future employer.
Inevitably, especially if you are on the job search while currently employed, your potential future employer will ask probing questions about your past and current experience. It is paramount that while these questions are being addressed you answer in a positive manner. While your past experiences might have left you with a sour taste in your mouth, it is essential to convey the most positive perspective from the experience.
As Ashira Prossack goes on to further elaborate in her article, these questions about past negative experiences open up an opportunity for you to convey the learning lessons you have gathered from experience. With practice, this positive mindset can spin a prior negative experience into a confident explanation of what you are looking to explore further in the next career opportunity.
