If you really don’t like the job then look for a new one and quit. As long as you don’t make a habit of job hopping you shouldn’t have a hard time explaining that this role/company just wasn’t a good fit.

All the above. I have enough money for about 6 months of living expenses if I really just go for it, but something inside of me is telling me maybe it will get better work wise

You don’t need to stay a full year to quit. If you have a new job lined up that interests you, do it.

Just get a new job lined up and leave. No reason to stay at B4 these days. Way better opportunities out there.

did this (stayed 4 months and boomeranged back to my old firm) It didn’t hurt me much, I still have recruiters reaching out to me on LinkedIn and every time the short stay comes up I just say that I didn’t see that LOS as a good fit.

3 weeks ago I applied to a CM role with KPMG and last Thursday I received an email to fill out the KPMG Online Employment Application as I move forward to the interviewing process and contact my recruiter with any questions. However, no recruiters have reached out to me yet. What should I do? (I applied on my own and am not in the referral program. Also this was my first time receiving an email like this even though I had applied a couple times before)

Any advice for how to decline travel? Partner is pushing for us to go but there is a delta variant and I want to be able to spend time with my family without worrying I’ll infect them.

I work on an account that has not set management boundaries with our client. It feels like we’re a restaurant, where client is allowed to directly request whatever tasks they want anytime and everything is urgent. Theres a tendency to send “last minute requests” which are usually completed on time... which means I have to drop everything else in order to complete it. I’ve been told to even start working 1 hr before my working schedule... even though I find myself working overtime 1-2 hrs. HELP!
