Have an interview in an hour. Leaving my firm after 3 months bc the role is far less challenging and fulfilling than I anticipated, and the role’s responsibilities are way off from the job description. Should I voluntarily explain why I’m leaving so soon or should I only bring it up if asked?

Bring it up only if asked

Why do you let them know and see if you can make your current job/role better?

Possibly will be asked so definitely be ready but no need to bring it up without being asked in this job market!

Most firms do some sort of exit interviews or at least informally ask. There’s no harm in being open about it in the formal process.

I’m curious of everyone’s views on job hopping. I’m on my 3rd job and have ~3 years of sales experience. Each job change has been an increase in comp and has shown clear career progression. At this point I’m working for a well known public company in SaaS, in their SMB segment, which has been great. But I’ve been approached by a smaller startup offering to double my base salary, 2.25x my OTE, and equity for an enterprise rep position. This is very enticing, but would I look like a job hopper?

Don’t know if this is a bad sign I won’t get it or if I’m just being insanely impatient and unrealistic.
