If I were a potential employer, I would be a little apprehensive about all the job jumping in such a short period of time. I would try to stick it out while ensuring that you master more job-related skills so that there’s nothing to dance around in a potential future interview.

@givemecouture:  You said you work in HR, so you must know the implications of jumping ship constantly. You will have to explain your resume and if you are repeatedly blaming your work environment, well, they may just start to blame you (you are the common denominator in each of these situations).

It sucks to be unhappy at work. I think everyone would rather be doing something else (like laying on a beach in Fiji or spending time with family members). The grass isn’t always greener. If you change again, what if the new job is even worse? Consider the future implications before you make your decision.

i think if you are not desperately unhappy you should stay there and maybe keep looking whilst you are there as if you leave, your resume will start to become too jumpy (I am talking from experience) and you will have a lot to explain to a new employer who may see you as a risky employee because you have many jumps already…. if you can stick around for at least a year it would be better in the long term… sorry they screwed you over… dunno if the grass really is ever greener – I have changed jobs so often and everytime I have I just wish I had stayed in the very first one!!!! Maybe you can make some suggestions to the head of HR on how processes can be improved and become more efficient based on your prior experience? if you champion these changes it may be better in the long run and you will be happier working there? good luck!!

Work your contacts.  Who are your HR-mentors that you’ve met through organizations with other companies?  It might help to get their knowledge of the area and who are the “stay away” companies.

But I hear you.  I ended up where I was thinking it would be a great opportunity and now on the other side HR’s a mess and doesn’t know what they’re doing, half the things I do have zero point to them, and I have to fight the system to actually accomplish my job.  So, you have my sympathies.  🙁

I think it’s fine if you start job hunting. I don’t really see a problem with job hopping. I’ve had to do it for a number of reasons (although a lot of those had to do with being laid off). It’s becoming more commonplace, though it wasn’t uncommon with our parents’ generation. Here are a couple of articles on it: one, two. In my experience, if it’s not a good fit at first, it never will be. And even if it seems like a good fit, it could turn out to be awful (like my last job).
