Does an early switch from a company looks bad on the resume? How does one handle the question if it comes up during the interview?

What's the honest answer? How can you assure them it won't be a problem if they hire you?

So here’s what I am doing. I am independently conducting coffee chats and meets to understand prospective job roles and responsibilities and that’s what I am going to mention in my response. Also, I am the kind of person who finds joy in delivering and I clearly see myself struggling to deliver and a lot of introspection has led me to the conclusion that it’s not me but it’s the job. My idea of delivery is excelling and surpassing the expectations. However in my current role I take only desired effort.

How early are we talking about? Why do you think this current role is something you want to do?

That is for sure going to be a part of my answer. I am extensively looking and finding resources to build a concrete answer which resonates with myself

Honestly, yes it looks bad. My hiring managers and C-Suite hate to see this on resumes, so I don't like to pass these candidates along. However, if there is only a single job hop on the resume, I allow the candidate to explain what happened (layoff, relocated, illness, family matters, etc.)

When there are 6-8 job hops and all under a year, sorry but THEY are the problem.

That is helpful, thank you. My shortest stint has been a year (not counting one place I was at for a few weeks) and longest was 10. I’m switching again after a year but I feel like startup years are like dog years and I was able to make a big impact and deliver above expectations during that time.
