Need some resume advice. I left my last job after 3 months due to micromanagement from my manager. I started a new job in December and I’m realizing I really want a more technical role. I’ve been a business analyst but I’ve been taking some courses to learn coding and I find it way more enjoyable. I am looking to switch to a different role in the future, but does it look bad to put my 3 month job and my current job on my resume? I’ve worked at previous jobs for 2-3 years.

I would really encourage you to stick it out at your current role for at least 1 - 2 years. It is possible to explain away one short stint, but it is exponentially harder to explain away two. It also sounds like you may need to work at building for technical expertise before your experience is going to align with your target role. I would focus on developing that skill set in your current role by taking more courses and raising your hand for projects that would allow you exposure to the technical side of the business. This way, you can develop tech experience while you’re in your current position and developing tenure.

I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
