Switching jobs frequently may be killing your career. Learn the dangers of job hopping before making your next move.
What is job hopping?
A job-hopper is a person who has changed jobs, on average, four times in a 10 year period.
How is job hopping perceived by potential employers?
A recent survey conducted by Robert Half found that a whopping 93% of hiring managers will remove you as a potential candidate from consideration if you appear to be a job hopper.
Whilst breadth of experience is indeed sought after, changing jobs with regularity can give warning signals to a lack of career stability and leave your interviewer speculating on whether you are able to make a long-term commitment to their firm.
