Starting to get really worried about my job stability right now. I'm an associate product manager with just a little over 1YOE. Been looking at jobs at startups and I don't even qualify for their APM jobs. I want to stay in product but the job market is terrifying right now. Any advice?

Left my first job after just shy of two years because I was bored. Have been at my current job for about half a year and it’s a great resume builder but an absolute horror story (long hours, unreasonable clients, tons of weekend work that’s not worth the pay). If I left in a few months, at the 10 month mark, would that significantly hurt my chances of getting a strong exit opportunity? I can’t imagine staying here for the full year but I don’t want to blow my chances at leaving for a cool job

I have a call on Monday for an in house job where I’d be drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts in areas that I’m not familiar with.

What questions should I be prepared for regarding transferability of my skills? Is there anything else I should be aware of?

Team just applied for a TS Clearance (defense agency). Trying to assess if it makes sense to wait till the clearance comes through (6 months to a year?) before I job hop. I'm hoping to get some clarity on the following:
1. Can my company withdraw or cancel my clearance if I leave right after I secure a TS?
2. In terms of compensation, how much value (% compensation) does a TS clearance have in the DC area? Places I'm considering: AWS, Azure, GCP, Data bricks, Appian etc.
Any advice, thanks!
