I just got offered a new job and will be starting in October. However, I'll also be applying to schools first and second round this year.

Is it better to have recs from my prior employer or my current one? I Haven't even started yet and when I ask for a rec I really would have only worked at my new place for a month at most.

Any help would be great!

Old employer and the why part goes in the optional.

Agreed. You won't get any push back from the admissions committees - this is fairly common and it would do them no good to get a recommendation from your new employer. They'll understand.
