If you were under aggressive new management whom you felt were making things less safe in your area and were generally just making your workplace untenable, what would you put on your job applications in order to be graceful? I am having difficulty because I don't want to sound accusatory and I don't want to be untruthful. Thanks

I would choose "Seeking new challenges and learning opportunities".

If asked in person, I would state I became comfortable within my position ,and felt I could use a change of pace or new learning opportunity. This shows the individual is eager to learn & actually have established goals. (my take of this statement. Some may consider those who "seek new challenges" as job hoppers)

Under reason for leaving--"still employed"

This. Employers don't ask for a reason a candidate WANTS to leave; they ask why she HAS left. Follow the Tarzan rule. Hold onto one vine until your hand is gripping the next.

If/when your current job becomes a past job, you use what some PP's have suggested: you wanted new opportunities for growth, want to hone new skills, etc.
