This is my 3rd company in last 6 years. I had valid reasons (not compensation) to change the last two companies but now I’m about to get an offer from another company and little hesitated to join it for the reason that I would look a job hopper on my resume.
The move would be purely based on compensation this time. Should I accept the offer?
This isn’t a problem until it becomes habitual over many years. I’ve job-hopped on average more frequently than that. As long as you’ve been moving up and you have positive references, nobody cares. If, however, you have 15+ years of work experience and you have never been at a place longer for two years, that may be a concern for some. Early in a career though, it really doesn’t matter.
Yes, its like switching boyfriends every year. Whats your next boyfriend gonna think about it? Do u want to have to explain to your boyfriend why you’ve had four boyfriends in the last six years? A lot of guys won’t care but if you meet a stick up his ass indian, he might care.
