I have 3 years of experience, in 2 jobs - one for a year, second for 2 years. Now I'm in my 3rd job. Each one of them was a big step forward, but my current company was not, contrary to what it was supposed to be, and I'm not happy about it.
It would be great to stay for half a year, learn as much as I can, then take a career break for some time to travel the world (while I still can), go back and start looking for a new job. Or start looking while on a break.
I would stay longer here, but - I have less money than I was told (no travel fees), I work from a different place, I have my whole team in a different place, I am not paid for overtime (I would happily work over 40h/week, because I don't have paid vacations). So even though I learn a lot, I'm not happy with my situation. In half a year, before taking a break, my cv would look like this:
1st job - 10 months 2nd job - 2 years 3rd job - 6 months
My current job is a contract, I could easlily justify all changes, but still - will it be considered a job hopping? Is it a good decision? Will the resigning after 6 months, and/or taking a break later (3 - 6 months, but with still learning in the meantime), affect my future career?
