Was laid off in April after 6 months and took a new job a month ago out of desperation. The work I’m doing isn’t interesting and I’m just overall very unhappy with the culture. Is it too soon to leave?

Just own up to the fact it wasn’t a fit but have good reasons why as opposed to uninteresting work. Culture is a good one usually. Places are going to be more forgiving right now with so many layoffs.

In being a realist, don’t leave until you have something new. And truth be told, that might take awhile.

I personally don’t know about that .. it’s better to show you’re currently employed but it’s also been a short timeframe. So I could play both sides tbh

Maybe unethical but... You could honestly just leave this new company and never put that you worked there on your resume. Say your unemployment went a month longer than it actually did haha

Agree with peeps above, but also, to be fair, it’s probably difficult to gauge culture when everyone is working from home.
