Not happy with full-time job and looking to freelance
I changed jobs last year to get away from a toxic workplace.
It was toxic when we were onsite and toxic via Zoom. The new job is ok. It's with a similar organization. It's not what I wanted but I took it for my mental health. Well, it's already tanking. It's a similar public organization rife with politics, lack of funding, no direction, you name it. Not having any colleagues I know well nor am close in any way with makes it more difficult (at my last job I had terrific colleagues and friends, and it hurt to have to leave but I couldn't take it anymore).
At this point, I've had it. I've received little to no direction. The supervisor who hired me transferred out shortly after I was brought on board. I've been coasting and going nowhere for months now with temporary bosses who don't care.
I've been freelancing on the side and that work is starting to really pick up. I'd like nothing more than to quit my full-time job and focus on this other work. It's financially feasible for the near future and I would be able to find other supplemental work if I had to. So, if I do this, how bad does it look on a resume to have a less than a year stint at a full-time job, followed by freelancing? I'm also dealing with childcare issues that will continue through the fall especially if there aren't any after-school activities or care options.
