I was hoping to get some help in answering a question on an application form I am filling in.
I have just started working for a Contract Sales company, and the position and company hasn't met my expectations. I don't see a realistic future in the company and am looking to move on. I have been with them under 3 months.
I come from an education background, having just completed an MBA programme - during the MBA, I became interested in leadership, HR, OB and many people related business dimensions.
I have seen a job for a large company, that I believe will offer the stimulation, career path and opportunities that are alligned to my interests and passion. This job looks GREAT!!
If you worked for a company for 1-2 months - would you put this on an application form? Would this omission be in my favour (as technically, I am still completing my dissertation).
If I do put this employment down, I have been asked give a reason why I am leaving - this is the hard bit...
I don't want to disparage my current employer (as some of the companies processes and policies are not particularly great), yet, at the same time, I don't want to come across as indecisive, or be considered in that light - where recruiters don't know what I want to do.
Interestingly, one of the reasons I went for this role was to gain some base level experiences that could then propel me into the type of role and function later in my career.
How would you put this?
Indicate current job?
Explain reasons? (this is the hard bit)...
I look forward to your feedback.
