I'm a recent college grad who took a job as a "Statistician" at a start-up 11 months ago (June1 will be one year). Unfortunately, a lot of my job has involved just data munging and bookkeeping, and not formal statistics (though I have done some ML and predictive modeling). It's really getting annoying, especially since my latest project is to audit all our accounts for the past month. Honestly, that is just BS. Sure, I'm working with data, but there is a BIG difference between looking at data and formal statistics, and I'm sick of not being able to apply my statistical skill set.
Since I am a new college grad, I figured that I needed to get some work experience and I've been just sticking it out. However, I'm really considering leaving now and was wondering if there was a minimum time to stay at a first job after college. I just don't want to be considered a job hopper.
