Rose shared her predicament. What is your advice.
I just graduated and this is my first full time job. I have been on it for about 5-6 months and frankly have not enjoyed a single moment of it for various legitimate reasons.
A few being: I don’t like the vibe, the work environment, lots of gossip for no apparent reason, and what I do does not feel fulfilling whatsoever. It is not what I expected at all when they described the job nature during the interviews and that’s very discouraging to me. I feel lost working here and nothing that I do interests me at all. Most importantly, I’m not happy.
I applied to a couple jobs and got a response right away for an interview. I feel extremely bad leaving the company so quickly but I feel that if I planned on leaving within 1-2 years anyway, there don’t seem to be an issue with leaving earlier to not waste their time in nurturing me and my own career growth.
However, obviously there is going to be a downside to leaving within a year, so I really need some good advice from people who have experienced this or are career advisors.
Any advice will be greatly valued, thank you!
