I do not have corporate experience and only have an associate’s degree, so I am a bit lost on where to go next. I know I need to be looking at making a major move, but need some advice on where to go from here.

Recently joined a new team in the summer. Things started out good then have somewhat started to fizzle out. Team is great overall and they work hard but the work I’m doing is not very exciting and is extremely monotonous. I have been casually looking and applying to roles within my industry but at the same time our dept has been great letting us work from home and not face any pay cuts or furloughs. There’s not much upward mobility within, would it be best to stay or take my talents elsewhere.

First advantage submitted my background result. A decisional item due to 1 employment not able to verify. This is on FA as it’s verifiable. A week later I disputed but FA did nothing so far and said they have 17 more days to go. Deloitte was blocked access during dispute and status showed as pending review still. Now I was told start date might be pushed. My start date is in a few days so I canceled dispute to let D investigators take over hopefully in a faster way. Did I make the right call?
