Can you explain why you changed career paths?

How to Use

Interviewer: I see on your resume that you majored in economics and worked at a bank for 2 years before becoming a computer programmer. Can you explain why you changed career paths?

Abby: When I was in university, I was very interested in business and the economy, so I decided to major in economics. After I graduated from university, I got a very good offer to work at Capital Bank. However, while I was working there, I became very interested in computer programming. I started studying and learning how to program in my free time. After a couple of years, I knew that I wanted to be a programmer. It was just a better fit for me.

Interviewer: I see. Are you still satisfied with your decision to change your career path?

Abby: Absolutely. Although I am still interested in business and the economy, I love doing programming and creating new and exciting products that people all over the world use. Now, I hope to start programming fun games that people everywhere can enjoy. That is why I am applying to your company.

Interviewer: That is great. And just to clarify, you do not have any experience programming mobile games. Is that correct?

Abby: Yes, that is correct.
