After interviewing for a software engineering role and passing, I was (rather shadily) tossed into an entirely different role, and I can no longer put SE on my resume. My goal is to become a senior software engineer and eventually make the jump to development within web3. With the current path I am on, I would actually consider it to be detrimental to landing a development job in the future but it will look bad for leaving a role this early. I lose valuable skills everyday. What should I do?
