It’s important for you to determine the reason as to why you want to leave your current role because the next employer will definitely ask and if without a good reason, employers would have a negative impression of you. I’m unsure how bad the current situation is at your job but you can consider 2 options, namely, (i) give yourself more time to assimilate into the job role and (ii) continue to stay on while looking out for fresh opportunities elsewhere concurrently. It would help you in terms of your bargaining power when the next job offer comes along. Under the current unprecedented economic climate, leaving a job without securing another may cause distress to some people because we won’t know how soon one will be able to secure the next role. It is therefore important to make an informed decision.
