Leaving Temp Contract before completion?

Hi,

I'm on a 6 month temp contract. If I leave for another job after, say 3 or 4 months, would this look bad?

The job isn't for me, so I'd rather get out....but I'm aware it doesn't look good on me, leaving my contract early at the halfway mark.


What do you think?

Opinions are appreciated!

Have you found another job? If no just suck it up for two more months. You will be out of there by default anw

Why not talk to HR or your line manager - and see if a more suited job is available. Assure her/him that you will give it your all, come what may - but that it isn't what you thought it would be, and that they would get even more out of you in a job that suited you better. You never know, your honesty might pay. For such a short term contract, I would really stick it out.

I agree and also depends on what it says on your permit, whether you are allow to change jobs! I know stuck in a job that you hate is hard but as you on contract, I will stick it out. I have done it on a longer contract before so as not to rock the boat too much. Just do your job, enjoy what you can at work place and fun outside work. 2 months is not too hard to swallow.
