Are you looking for a new job? Are you constantly looking for a new job? It is true that one should always strive for something better but as far as jobs are concerned, frequent job changes are not recommended because they can seriously hurt your career in the long term.
If you change jobs frequently, no matter what your reasons for this are, you are quickly labeled as an unreliable and disloyal employee. Employers don’t like such people because the presumption is that if you have quit many jobs, you will leave them soon as well. Employers like it when they fire people because this makes them feel powerful and hate it when their slaves, i.e. employees pull the plug on the relationship.
While it does matter why you leave your jobs – i.e. dissatisfied with your payment, no promotion opportunities, you didn’t like your job itself, you had personal reasons that made you quit, etc. – in any case frequent job changes are not wise. If you see that each job you take is far from what you expect, maybe you should consider becoming your own boss as a freelancer or start your own company.
On the other hand, if you spend many years on the same job, this is also bad. The optimal is to change your job once in 2 or 3 years – this is neither too soon, nor too long.
