I am asking this on a throwaway account, since I have not notified anyone of my decision, and am somewhat cautious about posting here.
I am planning on leaving the current workplace in the near future, due to medical issues that are tied to the job (I had about 150-200 hours of sick leave in the last 6 months). The reasons are specific to the job, so they should not impact me at my next role. I also plan on explaining to my current employer, that I am willing to wait a certain amount of time (maximum 1-2 months) for a person to come and replace me and for me to train them.
I am currently learning the skills for a new job during my free time, and am considering taking time off to learn them fully (at a non-enterprise level). I have the funds to be able to take time off, I'm only worried how it will look on a resume
Will this negatively impact my job search and/or interviews, if I state the medical reasons, and if I take a "break" from employment? How honest should I be to not leave a negative impact in the interview? I can guarantee them that the same medical reasons will not apply in the next role.
