I few weeks ago I was sacked
They told me


There were a lots of graduates and only one senior software developer. They decided reestructure the

team.

They eliminated my position as software developer and they let me go I was made "redundant".

Their intention was look for Team Leader with 15 years experience in order to mentoring the graduates

and that way create a small team, but they didn´t need more Senior developers.

I have an interview in a few days and they will ask me about

Do you think should I explain it in a specific way?

Regards

Yes. You can post in the jobs discussion forum where all sorts of workplace/career type questions fit in.

Sorry for what happens to you in your workplace.
If the interviewers ask you why you want to change job, you can simply say you want to explore different opportunities.
It is not recommended to say too much about your current company in job interviews.

Angus has asked his question in the appropriate place - here. Please continue the discussion there, the Ranch Office is reserved for discussion about the Ranch itself.
