Have you had a lot of jobs? Concerned about being thought of as a job hopper? You're right to be concerned. A survey from Bullhorn reports that 39% of recruiters considered staying at a job for less than a year as an obstacle for getting hired if you're out of work.
Of course, you can't help it if you're laid-off, but if you're bouncing from job to job of your own volition it's a good idea to consider the impact on your future employment prospects.
Lots of jobs of a short duration can lead an employer to believe that you won't stick around at their company either. It's important to consider the impact if you are moving on after a short tenure with a company by choice.
Here's information on how long you should stay at a job, the average length of time employees stay at jobs, and tips on deciding when it's time to move on and when it's better to stay for a while longer, if you can.
