Why do I want to leave my current position – Why do you want to leave your job?

I have an interview tomorrow within my current company. One of the questions I know that will come up is why do I want to leave my current position. I really need to be careful here since I am staying within the company and my potential new management is very close with my current management. Any suggestions?

Don’s answer to why you want to leave your current position

I would tie the answer to the question about leaving your current position to career growth. You can’t be expected to keep the same position in the same company forever. That would be unrealistic. Employers prefer their employees to seek advancement within the company instead of losing them to a competitor.
