Job change with in probation period

Hi

I need a small suggestion. I have joined a reputed firm last month..So not completed a month strictly..I have got some problems and I would like to make a job change..But it isnot even a month and even if it were, I am worried that my interviewer would definitely doubt my serious ness of continuation given that I have not stayed even for a year/ quarter..Even if I say that I have not found my job suitable in the other company and all those things, would any reputed firm incline to recruit me at all..

Please suggest

Thanks,

If you have a genuine problem and hence would like to change your job, then say it clearly to your interviewer. If this is a one-off incident with you, they might not make a big deal out of it. But, if you've done the same in the past (i.e. changing a job within a month or two of joining), then the interviewer's impression would be different.

I know people that quit in 2 days / a week. If its a horrible place then the new recruiter will understand.

We once had a candidate that was attending an interview when it was the first day of his job in some other company. The HR was still prepared to hire him because the requirement was difficult to fill. Beat that

You do of course need to understand that these are very exceptional cases.

Being honest is the key. We all go through these kinds of situations.

You can change without any problem as long as you have not completed month or two but make sure that reason you would tell should not create negative impression of you.

Side note. Definitely a wording issue. You probably meant telling your new company that your old job wasn't suitable. This can also be read as you telling your old company that you are leaving for a job that is not suitable...


Back on topic, it really depends on what "not suitable" means. If a resume shows up on my desk with a job that lasted a few weeks, I would be inclined to know why? And just saying "not suitable" could mean anything.

The reason could be as simple as constraint in relocating or even for training purposes..But I am unable to know if the interviewer will ever sympathise on that reason and that I had to leave the organisation because there were no opportunities for already a month and over in the city I was staying..

Thanks

I'm not sure what you mean by training purposes, but if there's a problem with relocation, you would've known it earlier while joining the new company. I think an interviewer might question you about this.
