I mean it was a bad fit. They mis-sold the role to me completely.

Think it’s fine. I had a coworker who was in a similar spot left for a small startup and it was a bad fit. 3 months later exited to FANG and was just honest about the previous role being a bad fit.

It happens. Just frame it as a bad fit.

What do you think?

Absolutely, if you can’t last 3 months somewhere that’s a red flag

Would t be better for me to just leave it off and look like I’ve been unemployed for 3 months?

No because it sounds like you’re lying or trying to cover something up. It will get found out during a background check anyway so just own up to it.

I'm looking for information on Nutanix/Frame. Being a startup, I'm curious about opinions on the company itself (i.e. future viability, potential costly license changes). I've also heard some less than flattering information on sales tactics vs actual cost. I'm not worried about performance as what I've read & experimented with in a 3rd-party lab speaks for it. I'm familiar w/offerings from VMware, Azure/AWS,Workspot & previously implemented Citrix. I'm looking at platforms supporting 3D/CAD gpu

So I have a Kindergarten student who daily struggles with emotional regulation. They will easily get really upset or angry. Then once they have calmed down are great. However, the teacher isn’t helping the problem.She expects a 5 year old can immediately listen to instructions and sit for extended periods of time. She doesn’t seem to try and talk him down but gets frustrated when he starts. I need help as I’m at my wits end. I want this kid to have success & the teacher to change her practice.
