I quit my job, how do I move forward?

I walked out my job little over a month ago. The place became toxic, the people, just everything, HR and upper management were no help and I just felt mentally exhausted. It was not the best choice by far to walk out but I did. I know in interviews yo

Answers:

This is one of the reasons why you should always look for the new job before you quit the old one. You have to say something vague like "not a good fit" or realized that the field was not what you were interested.

You may have issues using that job as a reference at all. They are going to have to call them to verify employment and are likely going to be told you walked out without notice... and that would probably cost you the new job. Whenever you walk out of a job without notice you have to be prepared to not be able to use it as work experience on your resume/applications.

Some people think you get in some kind of trouble if you leave a job off an application but that's not necessarily true. If they're the type of place that runs your credit as a part of the application process (which has never happened to me) they might see it listed on your credit but otherwise they'd have no way to know about the former employer unless you tell them. If you worked at the old place a long time you might need to be prepared to explain the lapse of employment, and if they were your only work experience you may have to start over from scratch as if you've never had a job before, but otherwise just pretend the job you had before them was the last time you worked. I understand leaving without notice (I've left jobs like that myself because I stayed too long and lost the ability to force myself work out a notice), but it doesn't come without consequences.

Stretch the truth a bit - say something in a positive light such as "I was looking for more of a challenge and I had reached the end of learning possibilities. So I decided to look for a job that presented more of a challenge." Then be prepared to explain what challenges you are looking for (more responsibility, more learning opportunities, more input into the work itself, etc.). Do not talk about the people, your managers, the environment, etc. One of two things will happen - you will be viewed as a complainer (who wants a complainer on staff) or the employer will assume that you would talk about them the same way (no one wants that).

You have to be careful with that answer. Don't say it was toxic, that always makes you look like the problem, even if it was true. If you are applying for a very different type of work than what you were doing, then saying it wasn't a good fit can work, BUT if you are applying for similar type work, don't say that, again you look like the problem.
You can't say anything bad about the employer so think about things the new job offers in the way of activities that you prefer to what you were doing before and go with that.

Simply say "It wasn't a good fit".

just say the environment was toxic.
