How do you answer this question properly when you are perfectly content working for your current job?
I was contacted directly by a recruiter through LinkedIn about a new opportunity witih a different company. It appears to be a good fit for the next level in my career progression.
I am following the CT advice which is to always keep your options open. The honest answer to the subject question is that I'm always open to new possibilities.
I am afraid that using this answer will result in a negative response form the interviewer, since they will not feel a strong vibe of enthusiasm from me. It's a much less sexy answer than "I've always wanted this job and to work for this company..."
At the same time, I don't want to pass up what could be a great opportunity for me in my career.
Lastly, I just started my new job in Jan of this year which makes it even more sticky.
