It is less than a year and I am seeking employment. I officially started today. I hate my job and the pay irritates me.

I do not want to look for a job but life is too short to stay in a place that does not work for me. Hopefully, I will be get a better reaction now that I live and work in my new state.

I cannot dwell on the length of time I have worked at my current position. Sometimes, it is just not a good fit.

Anyone else in the same boat. If so, how is it going?

That's rough. But this sort of thing happens for all sorts of reasons.
There's really no predicting how a relocation and shift in work can turn out.

You really have no choice but to hope for a better reaction whatever it is you do and wherever it is that you are now
(vs whatever it is that you did wherever you were before)... especially since you went ahead and jumped in with both feet
and committed to the home purchase obligations so prematurely.

Good luck with it all.

You're not alone. I'm 3 weeks from the 1-year anniversary of a job I determined was a dud after 3 mos. I told myself I would give it one year to see if it got better and it hasn't. I have done everything I can to resolve the situation to no avail. This employer pretty much oversold the job during the interview and I've found that reality is drastically different. Had I known the truth, I would not have taken the job. It sucks because I hadn't expected to be on the market again so soon. But, sometimes things just don't work out.

I'm now focusing my energy on finding a new opportunity, and hope to land something new before Memorial Day. I started looking in Feb and have had some interviews. Things are looking great. So, highly probable that I'll be in a new role soon.

Good luck to you!

Good luck to you! I feel a little sad that I am in this predicament. I feel ungrateful too. Sigh.
