Op if you are not happy, start looking life is too short to be unhappy. If the new employer is willing to hire you who care if you had been at old job for 1 year, 1 day or 10 years. Good luck

I think there is a lot of it depends here. I think it is important to understand what exactly you don't like about your job. If you can't put your finger on what you don't like, then you run a greatet risk of switching jobs into something you won't like. In some cases you might be able to make the change at your current company so that you like the job you have. It is also important to know that most entry level jobs have parts of the job that people don't enjoy doing. I suggest looking at what most of your seniors are doing and see how you would feel about that type of work. You really don't want to have several jobs with only one year at the company. Hiring managers do look at this. So if you can find a job before leaving your current company then you will need to stay at your next job for at least 2 years and maybe 3 years. If your current job is really not a good fit for you and it is just bringing you down then leave. Will you have to explain it to potential further employers.. yes probably. Will it look not as good as having more time at the company..yes most likely. How bad will it actually be...hard to say. If it is better for you then just do it and understand that there will be outcomes from it, some that are positives and some that might be negative.

Too early is what sense? What is your concern?

Yes. Stay for 2 unless you are truly miserable. 1 looks terrible despite what anyone here says and however it may have worked out for them

If I’m interviewing & I see jobs of less than a year, I assume they couldn’t cut it

Depends on employment history. If 1 one-year stint looks like an anomaly, no big deal. If it all looks like that it will be a turn off for employers.

I have seen people hoping around every year and no issues finding the next gig. I am not saying it’s a good thing but as long as the next employer is will to hire, take the jump if you are not happy and find something good.

I left PA after a year and a few months to industry, and now switched back to PA (but B4 this time around). I’m in cyber though, and we’re known to jump around a lot, so for us it’s a norm. My career is pretty solid, but there’s always room for more.

I want to say it starts to become a problem only if that seems to be the trend on the resume.. if you stayed are your old job for a decent amount of time, and less than a year at your next I still think it’s reasonable..
