Interviewing for a new position after a downsizing can be tough. After all, your head may still be spinning from the experience; you may still be asking yourself, "Why me?"; or you may just be plain angry at your previous employer.

Yet one question that you are sure to be asked on an interview is, "Why are you currently in a job search?" Despite the fact that this is a typical interview question, not everyone is prepared to answer it in a way that works for them rather than against them.
