Is leaving after 7 months a bad look? I’ve found myself lacking any team support and the role is not what I was promised. Not sure how I could spin this on my resume for future employers.
Any advice?

I’ve done it. And it’s been more than once. Hiring managers have not cared. And I wouldn’t care if I was interviewing you

I think it’s fine to have 1 mulligan due to poor fit on the resume so long as it is not a pattern. I’ve done the same with no detriment to recruiting interest. Plus if you start looking now it will be a couple months until a start date and look closer to 1yr

Raises a red flag especially if you have multiple less than 1 year stints. But if you're good you should be fine

I don't think anyone with a few years' agency experience would begrudge you if it's a one-off and your CV isn't a series of seven months stints.

I recently hired a person who was in your position. What made him compelling was that he had good prior experience, he was still employed at this role, and he communicated that his current job was a bit of a bait and switch in terms of responsibilities and managerial oversight. He was looking to come over to dig into a client and gain some direction--and he was direct with us throughout the interview about his future goals and current state.

I find that if you're honest with people they'll often be often with you. You'll be fine.

I’m in the same boat. Been here about 7months..


It’s super annoying to have recruiters reach out, but then ask why you’re looking. YOURE THE ONE WJO REACHED OUT TO ME?!

Same boat! It depends on what kind and how long your previous positions were. I feel the industry right now is stagnant, especially for data and analytics folks. You’re a consultant, not sure if my views apply

I’ve done this twice unfortunately - It’s the first thing they will ask you and as long as you have a good reason (sounds like you do) they tend to be very understanding and of course want you to potentially join their team considering they are reaching out with an interview

I’ve done it once with no problem and agree with @supervisor 1. By the time you leave it will be a year.

I would try to tough it out for a year if you can. I was in a pretty rough place but toughed it out.

Just be honest. Find a way to explain the situation without shit talking the employer. It happens. Be upfront and communicate well and it won't be a problem for you.

I left one place after 6 months. It was not a good fit and ultimately wouldve held the team back. Dont do it frequently and you should be fine. Once wont hurt

I remember working at my previous job and lasted only 8 months. During those 8 months I was feeling that it wasn’t a great fit being a Manager of Media Platforms & Operations. Before I started looking, I was laid off due to company “downsizing”. I was lucky enough to use being laid off as an opportunity to find my current role.

I want to join a start up in my industry but I need to rescind a job acceptance from a more establish company. I resigned from my old job and didn’t start the new job yet. Is the non compete I signed, as part of the job offer acceptance for the position with the bigger company, enforceable if I rescind my job acceptance before I actually start a new job? I don’t think it is. I didn’t receive a sign on bonus so no additional consideration was exchanged from my understanding of my law classes.

The old administrator at my department won't allow me to write on what I want, even though I thought that was implicit when I joined. Can I push her to allow me to take control of my research?
