You don’t need to stay a year for your résumé’s sake. There’s nothing magical about the one-year mark.
If your concern is that you don’t want to look like a job hopper, a single short-term stay isn’t going to be a problem. Job hopping is about a pattern where you repeatedly leave jobs after only a short time; it’s not about one short tenure. Also, when it is a concern, staying for a year won’t counteract it anyway.
When we start a new job, we are often told to 'fake it 'til we make it.' However, we may continue to feel out of our depth. It may be because there are no clear indicators that measure our performance.
When writing a cover letter it is important to understand the significance of it. One's cover letter should go beyond their work history and must include the things that cannot be found in a resume.
It should include personal traits, work habits, inter and intrapersonal skills, achievements, and even one's enthusiasm for the job.
Your cover letter is like a simple introduction of who you are and what makes you a strong candidate for the company.
They’re very risky for the applicant. Even if you don't resign from your job before the reference check, you will have to tell your boss you are on the verge of leaving. So either way, you’d be in a vulnerable position with your security in your current job at risk before your offer is final.
As a candidate, one option is to push back on the contingency, explain it could jeopardize your current job, and offer up plentiful other references.
