Now a days, while recruiting, they are really very keen in knowing the reason for change, infact more then technical you need to prepare for these question and I guess,it sounds logical.
What they really want to know is whether you are approaching them only because you are not happy at your place or otherwise and whatever you say, they may end-up saying something like "what if you get same environment here" ... !!!

But I don't think this can stop you from getting selected (offcourse with some exceptions).They just warn you that you may face the same music in
their company also.
And one more thing I have noticed is that discussion immediately follows the salary negotiations, so they drain you so much that you really don't have much energy to negotiate ... but offcourse this is mine opinion only

I ask every candidate about the reason for leaving every job, at least for the past 5 years. I also follow up with the company when possible. I saw way too many kids who wuld salary jump during the boom. I'd never touch them.
Remember that employers want loyalty. You need to sell yourself as loyal. You need to have good reasons for leaving your last job, and describe it in a way that he would feel would not be applicable to this company.
I'd appreciate it if you pronounced my name correctly. Pinhead, with a silent "H". Petite ad:
