    I am not sure what an employer will think if he/she sees your short 3-month career. Every employer is different. Some may judge, others don't. Perhaps those who don't judge are also better employers...? Be frank and pursue what you love!

    If you still need some kind of safeguard, try to articulate your contributions in the past 3 months well. At least you contributed. Contribution can start as early as day 1!

    Also, I'm not sure if it makes sense to omit your short career to your potential employers...

    All the best.

      You don't have to be overly or unduly worried. I guess you have a probation period - it's a time for both the employer and employee to check each other out for fit and suitability.

      Ask yourself this, if you don't enjoy this role but think that 3 months is too short to call it quits.. what then is a good enough time? Another 9 months? That time could have been used to do and learn something you enjoy.

      You now have the advantage of being fresh from school and being new into the role. Suggest you speak with the company to see if there are other areas of interest within the company.
