This is my first post, but I’ve been a long time lurker here. I am hoping the bees can help me out on this one, I’ve seen helpful responses in this forum.
I just started a new job this month.To be completely blunt, I don’t like the job itself, it’s quite boring, although it is in my career field, but it’s money and experience which I need. FI recently has been working a new job too, but his is incredible and has potential for something big down the road. Here’s the issue; although he works remotely most of the time, he does have to travel about 3 hours away on a weekly basis and as such, we’re looking to move to the city the job is based in (as he does not get reimbursed for travel expenses, and it can add up). We won’t be moving until mid July though due to prior committments here.
So comes my dilemma. I’d be about 2-3 months in at my job in July. The probation period is 90 days anyway. The only issue is, how do I go about quitting this job without hurting my resume and possible contacts? I just started last week, so I don’t want to necessarily tell them right now that I’ll be quitting in a few months but I don’t want to spring it on them either. My boss(es) are well known.
Any tips and advice on the proper way to resign from a new position? Should I even include that on my resume? Most of my jobs were contract jobs that were at least 1-2 years, and my longest job was nearly 10 years!
