It may be the reason you are looking for another job in the first place – you and your
current boss do not work well together.  And good for you for taking charge of the
situation to find something that is a better fit for you.  But how do you approach this
situation so it will not hinder your chances at a new company?  There are a few steps you
should take first and you need to mind what you say during the interview.

A lot of interviews will contain at least one question about your working relationship
with your current boss.  They can take many forms and you should prepare for a lot of
different types of questions that may be asked.  No matter what the question, even if it is
one asking you to describe conflict with your boss, be positive and do not bash anyone in
your answers.  

Remove any emotions from the equation and explain the situation using the facts and
highlight all of the professional steps you have taken to rectify the situation.  Don’t try
and make your boss sound like the bad guy, and try to de-emphasize the entire event.  It
may seem like an opportunity to vent about the situation but if you do, your are cutting
off an avenue to escape the working relationship you want to get away from.  Present the
facts, be neutral and highlight your problem-solving skills.

If you are concerned that your current boss will sabotage your efforts to find another job
during the reference check stage you can solve this in a couple of ways.  If your boss is
reasonable and the two of you just don’t work well together, chances are you don’t have
to worry too much.  Be sure to give him or her a heads up though.  If you aren’t
comfortable with this, try and find another manager that you have worked for in the
company previously that you can pass on as a reference.
