How early is too early to leave a job? Started in January (first job out of college) and while I’m not necessarily actively looking for a new role, I wouldn’t say no if the right one came around.

I left my first job out of college at 5-6 months. I knew it wasn't for me due to lack of comp and growth potential for all the work they asked for. Got myself an offer for a much better position. I haven't noticed any real downside to leaving so "early". If companies need qualified employees, they will hire. Just make sure you can explain why you are looking to jump ship because you almost definitely will be asked.

I would say you are always safe if your move is vertical. 2 lateral moves within a 12-18 month period would be a harder to justify.

As analyst 1 said, only move if it’s a much better/ prestigious role. Also, the best time to go for such roles is now to get your foot in the door. The later you try, the harder it will be. But make sure what career path you’d like, excel in your current role, network, and apply

I’d say start networking ASAP because building connections now can help prep you when a role opens. If for example you want to do asset management / equity research, I would recommend enrolling in CFA level 1. If you want to do IB start taking LBO modeling courses and then network now, you got this 👌🏽

Generally you want to avoid jumpiness on a resume, unless it’s clearly a superior role.

1-2 years is standard. Again depends on the move. If it’s a lateral then it looks jumpy if you’re going from back office to front office nobody cares
