I have been working at an organization since mid-Oct. I was hired to a newly created position. However, since starting in this position I have done nothing I was told I was hired to do (marketing). All I have been doing is admin tasks for my boss.
I have an interview next week, thank god. I am wondering, what is the right response to the obvious question about why am I job hopping so quickly? I am 31, so the answer of “I’m trying to find my true passion” doesn’t seem so appropriate anymore. I don’t want them to think I am hard to please because this is a job at a really great organization and I would really like this opportunity. Any ideas on an appropriate and desired response?
