I have a few questions about interviewing and need a new perspective.
I've been in my current job for 11 years. I'm mentally burnt out, have been for 5 years now and I've injured my neck and back to the point I'm physically not able to do this much longer. I work at hospital and do patient care. I want to get back to a M-F job in an office setting, which I've done the majority of my working career.
I've applied for a few jobs in different departments at the hospital where I work and when asked why I'm applying for the job, I say I've been doing my current job so many years and I'm ready to learn and do something new. Is this not an appropriate response? Should I add that I'm almost at the point I can't physically be active on my feet 12 hours a day?
Also, if you are applying for a job in a different dept, do you tell your boss that you are doing so? I've never done this in my previous jobs.
I recently applied for a job outside of my current dept and received an email today from HR asking if I informed my boss that I did this and is there anything they could do to make me stay in my current position and why after all this time do I want to leave? I've never received an email like this from HR before and they haven't requested an interview from me. Help.
