Is it important to persist with a new job?

If you have recently taken up a new job role or gone to work for another company you may not necessarily be happy with your latest chose of employment, but should you wait a while before you hand your notice in? In many cases, problems at work can often be solved by discussing them with your manager, but you may worry about doing this so early on in to a job. When you first start a job, most people are given a review after the first week, month or possibly three months. This is the perfect opportunity to air your concerns but if you simply cannot wait that long then arrange a one on one meeting with your superior to discuss your issues in detail.

If you do not feel that the situation can be resolved, then you may consider looking for a new job. Leaving a job after only a few weeks or months does not look great on a CV but as long as it doesn’t happen often and you can fairly explain your reasons why, then it’s probably not going to be too much of an issue. You may find that you have to wait until the end of the month to get paid when you leave a job and if you have to work a month in hand in your new post, it could be a while before you have a steady income coming in.
