Made a wrong call moving to my current place after 5y/e in consulting. Was basically mislead about the position I’d be going in at.

Interested to get the thoughts of fishes who have been in a similar position. What is a respectable amount of time to stay before handing in my notice to not create a CV issue to explain away in the future?

I’d hand in straight away to minimise the gap, no? What’s your plan for finding your next role

Might start replying to recruiters on LinkedIn / do some freelance until I can get onto a phd placement

Similar position.. 5 months in and hoping to hand-in my notice within the next month..
Keep your cool and don’t jump ship just for the sake of it, it can take time to find the next right role. Look out for the good things of your situation and leverage them for your next move..

Helpful both thanks - so you think certain employers would see it as a black flag and instantly remove someone from consideration for something like that?

Employers have certainly questioned my move.. prepare a strong unquestionable case, and you’ll find most people will be reasonable with you is my experience..

My manager from an old job (where I performed well, and left on great terms) agreed to be my reference. The next day, he got a link from the background check company for filling out the referral form. However, ever since then, he has completely ghosted me. All my messages are left on read. No idea what is happening and it’s been 48 hours of no response from him. No words really, just shocked that he suddenly went silent. Wondering if he harboured any ill will and will cost me this job ☹️

As long as I’m clear about my role is that acceptable?
