I really want to leave my current employer but I'm feeling a little trapped due to my three month notice. I've been with my current employer a little more than one and a half years and this is my first job in the industry so I'm still a junior software developer.
I've applied for a few jobs and been on a few interviews but a lot of recruiters have told me point blank that the notice period is too much. Especially for a junior developer.
My current plan in my head is to quit my job and start looking for jobs in the last month of the notice.
I've got quite a bit in savings and a pretty big safety net back home with my mum if it gets to that point so I'm not too worried from a financial point of view.
Will it look bad for prospective employers? Does anyone have any experiences with this? Am I being stupid?
I'm in the north west of England if that's of any help.
