I left a small (30ish consultants) management consultancy around 6 months ago, having been there for only 7 months. I left because I did not think the prospects for the firm looked healthy (i.e. difficulty in getting new work, half the company "on the bench" etc). I have been contracting for the past 6 months as an interim move, whilst looking for my next perm consulting position.
When asked in an interview, "Why did you leave your last perm role?", if I give my true reason for leaving, will the interviewer think that I don't have the "stickability" or that I "give up" to easily?
Would appreciate some constructive feedback/advice on what I should say...
