What are some viable excuses for leaving a company that would look good on your resume ?

I am working as a Personal Assistant for a Managing Director of a huge listed company. I have just tendered my resignation and wish to have this record updated on my resume but working for only 6 months wouldn't look good on my record (jumpy) unless if I have a good reason.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Reason for Leaving = ?

Reason for leaving is normally asked on the applications to a new job. Some employers don't even make it mandatory. Dont put it on your resume, but if they ask, dont be blunt about the reason either. Maybe you can say something like we had some creative differences or something

That is not information that needs to be volunteered. If they ask, you tell them "I didn't fit in with the culture". Do not put it on your resume.
