Common Job Interview Question: Why do you want to leave your current company?

Response A:

However, with more automation, I am doing less and less which impacts my career growth.

Working for Mavis Technologies was a wonderful experience, however, I wanted to go back to school in order to take my career to the next level. Upon finishing my new degree, I came across this position and felt it was more in line with my new career path.
