For the past couple weeks I have been looking for a job. I plan to put in my 2 week notice tomorrow with my current employer. I’m getting paid about 40% less than what the average is for a software engineer in my area (Florida) and I have a ton of responsibilities.
I am trying to figure out what the appropriate response is if I am asked why I left my previous employer. The reason is that I was grossly underpaid, but I don’t want to put it that way and have potential employers think that I am greedy. I don’t know of a decent way to put it or if saying that money is the reason at all is a good idea.
