Looking for a new job and need advice
I started a new job earlier in the year after being out of work for a year. The pay and benefits aren't that great, but I needed to take something. I am thinking of looking for another job that hopefully pays better and I will be 55 at the end of the year.
The boss and the work are ok and the commute is only 10 minutes, which are positives, the real reason I want to look is pay and benefits.
My question, if I get interviews and when asked the question, why are you looking to leave, what are my best options? I don't think it sounds good to say better salary and benefits since I think I would come across as selfish, but it would be the truth.
What would be the acceptable response?
