I just graduated and got my first "real" job. I want to get experience and then move to something better and higher paying.

Is 7 months too short a time? Or is it just long enough to not seem strange on a resume?

whoever interviews you is going to ask why you are leaving your current company...soo...how would you answer that?
>>
>>1744458
A year usually. 2 years if the job has some type of prestige attached to it.
>>
>>1744484
"This seems like a better opportunity because you're organization offers x, y, z and that compliments the skills I've previously developed with my most recent employer"?

I just want to keep getting skills until I'm in my dream job, I look at everything I do as a resume builder.
>>
>>1744488
The job is shit, but I can be vague and lie a bit. The organization is a well respected nonprofit though.
>>
>>1744458
7 months doesn't look good. Try to do two minimum
>>
>>1744553
You don't develop skills in 7 months. At most places for any serious job, it takes a year just to get trained and acquainted with everything to get to the point where you actually start adding serious value.
>>
You leave your job either when you get something better, or the job becomes bad.

Fucking americans. You have literally negative loyalty. Even the disloyal at least stick around if you pay them. You yankee fucks and cucks outright look for examples to leave or betray people.
>>
>>1744564
Sad but true.
If you move around too much, no serious employer will hire you because they want lifers.

No thanks, Europoor.

Why the FUCK would I be loyal to that? Fucking cuck, the point is to take everything you can and keep climbing.

1 year minimum

2-3 ideal

look at the europoor on the finance board - he doesn't understand the basic function of large corporations.

Maybe you would have had a point if we lived in the fucking 1960's.

Fucking millennials I swear...

Good goy

>>1744564

this is so completely wrong
>>
>>1744458
What I did was I stayed for 3 years (with one promotion to a senior assoc. In the 2nd year) in my first job even if the pay and work hours are shit, because the experience was great and highly regarded by companies.
>>
>>1745210
>loyalty

There's no such thing in business. I know that a company wouldn't hesitate to fire me should it become advantageous for them to do so. Similarly, I have no hesitation to hand in my notice should I find something better.

It's a business relationship. Not a friendship.

Also, I'm a bong not a burger.

what the fuck do you think. If you work as anything for 7 months you entry level anyway, 2 years is a junior position.
>>
>>1745599
Because of my degree and past experience I started in a highly selective consulting position at a well respected nonprofit - but I make shit. So I want it on my resume, but the job Fucking sucks and I want out, life's too short to be on call 24/7.
>>
>>1744553
>I look at everything I do as a resume builder

so when you get to the interview for your dream job and they see that you never stay with a company for more than 1 or 2 years, Wont they assume you will only work there for a short amount of time?

Your resume says you are a job hopper, and you probably wouldn't even get an interview.
>>
>>1746122
You are still in junior position, internships don't matter shit for anything above entry level
>>
>>1744458

I've had two job out of college so far I'm on my third and I stayed 11 months for the first one and 15 for the second one. They key is to have a good excuse. Ie moving to be closer to family, office was too far away from sick loved one, wanted a career change, get creative and you'll make it.
