How will you Answer this Interview Question

In my line of work I come across many people who come into an interview unprepared. They try and "wing" the interview and hope for the best. Research and preparation is key to a successful interview. Here is a common interview question.

Why are you looking for a new job?
Bad Answer: My boss is a jerk and I do not get along with my colleagues.

Tip: Keep the answer positive, in terms of where you want to go, not what you want to get away from.

Better Answer: I have been promoted as far as I can go with my current employer. I'm looking for a new challenge that will give me the opportunity to use my skills to help my employer's business grow.
