7. Tread carefully in interviews
As tempting as it can be to throw your former job, boss, and colleagues under the bus—just don’t. Potential employers don’t want to picture you trashing them in a couple years, and if your industry is small your complaints could easily make their way to someone at your current company. Instead take the high road, which means remaining neutral, and focusing your conversation on your excitement about the new job as opposed to your gripes with your current one.
