I really don't think anyone here can give you much of an answer apart from: tell the truth. When and if you get to the interview just explain that you did not feel comfortable where you worked so you left to try some other possibilities. They did not work out the way you hoped so you want to get back into mainstream employment. People will always respect you for telling the truth.

A better piece of advice would be to stop wasting your time here and go and talk to some of the local recruitment consultants. You need to find out what the employers want (something we can never answer) and then figure out how you can get to the point of being able to offer those skills or experience. It may mean starting at the bottom again but sometimes you have to bear some short-term pain just to get back on the treadmill.

I want to be able to vote on comments. This one is stellar! I will vote on your solution instead :)

Thanks, but I am just trying to get the OP (and others like him) to realise that he is not going to get a magic answer to a question like this from a technical forum.

Do what I did at the start of career. Code for 18 hours a day and think about coding for rest of the six hours. After few days, you can really kill any offer on its toe.

I'm sorry, but this is at least a lie.
 
Programming is somthing that take years of study to master it.
I've got several software engineers in my department that have needed from one to two years to learn the basic skills needed for my job (after finishing their high degree studies). A few days don't make a good professional...

I agree entirely with your comment except that I vote 2 for this solution: Putting in any amount of effort every day to try and learn deserves a better vote then the OP's question...

I think, you got me wrong here! OP is not talking about the process of becoming a gret programmer. He wants confidence to attend Interview and he wants to get rid of his fear of a new issue. So I offered him the only way to do it. Just spend more time coding. Smile | :)

How is 18 hours a day coding likely to make that happen?

You would fail to get solution. You will try. You will not get there. You keep on trying. So you are glued to your system till you get the solution. Once you get there, you will be more confident and will try to see the end of any programming problem the same way. Keep working is the motto! 18 hours is a phrase. Dont we all intrinsically agree to it?

No. I appreciate that you need to work hard in order to succeed in the longer term, but this person is just trying to get back into IT after a break of 8 months, and I don't see how any amount of coding is going to help him.

First i proposed you not to be frustrated much.You need to believe it,you must be succeed in your way.Then stand strongly infront of the interview,and answer straightly that for which problem you left the previous company,then explain them that,you took some time for mind setting and returning back again to software fields.As you waste some times in this gap,so don't waste it more.Try to learn programming well and do practice over it.
Always have a belief in your mind,things aren't same always in life.If you have worse time today,then surely tomorrow will bring success for you.
