I have been working at my current job for about three months now and I am realizing I made a mistake in accepting the role.
Some background: I worked at a very toxic start up for 9 months and eventually quit this past fall because my mental health was suffering. I thought I wanted to leave tech altogether because of my last experience. I focused on finding a job outside of tech and landed a job offer fairly quickly that I ended up accepting.
Looking back, I should have given myself some time to heal and soul search for what made me happy in a role. Now, I am three months into this new job that isn't aligning with what I want in a role. I also realized I that I should have stayed in like tech.
I will not be adding this job to my resume as I do not see it benefitting me during the job search this time around. However, I'm unsure of what to do next - I see my options are:
Continue at this role and job search
Quit this role so that I can job search full time, but have a gap in my resume
I am feeling quite alone in this experience and would love to hear if anyone has been through this before. Thank you!
