I’ve been in my first supply planner job for 8 months, but the pay is terrible compared to other places. Is it too soon for me to leave?

Absolutely not, leave and take a better option


I usually like to try to stick to a job for at least a year unless it is a severely toxic environment. It does not look good on a resume to keep jumping from job to job. If it's just the pay that's the issue then I would say try to stick it out a little bit longer.

So when is a good time to leave? If you’ve a better opportunity, that’s the right time.

Nope. Leave now and don't settle for less. Start looking for more job opportunities that are better than your current one.

Would say to stay at least 4 more months. It may not be a good thing for your resume having a job experience of less than a year. Just don't do the same mistakes again next time.

Well depends on you as an individual I’ve always jumped from one place to another on my resume and all the intending employer ask for is assurance to assure them I will stay with them and my response is that once my expectation are met why not?

I left my last job due to poor pay compared to the work load I was delivering great result in a global role so couldn’t endure anymore after some years I had to step up a bigger deal in a better firm so pls step up if you have the opportunity to never limit yourself , if they really appreciate your skills they will beg you to stay and do what you want .

My last job never wanted me to leave because they know they loosing a valuable member of the team with top skills but they couldn’t stop me either

Where are you based? Most of the time, pay varies depending on location. Maybe you can ask for a small raise?

Can you stick it out for 4 more months? I think it would be much better to leave after you reach your 1-year mark. It will be a little red flag to other companies.
