    My misfit for this job

    Is the phrase "my misfit for this job" a grammatically correct way to say I am a bad fit for a position?

    No.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You could say:

    I am unfit for this job.

    (Note that misfit is a noun.)

    So..

    " This job is misfit for me." Is this correct?

    Thank you.

    not a teacher

    If you have checked your dictionary, a misfit is a person(nothing to do with a job) and is not an adjective.

    You can say - this job does not suit me.

    Re: My misfit for this job

    Better perhaps to say:

    This job is not working out for me.

    (Or take tedmc's advice. )

    And, no, you don't want to describe yourself as a misfit.
