Jumping around from job to job & how that's perceived
What's the minimum number of years you should be at a company so you're not seen as a life-long job jumper? I'm 32 and I'm already on my 4th company and considering moving again. I know Millennials can get a bad rap and I worry about how it looks on my resume. Thoughts about this and tips on how to manage this part of the conversation with a future employer should it come up?

As someone who stayed at a company for years because I thought it would look bad on my resume... life too short to worry about things like that if you're miserable. Not worth an extra day.

It comes down your story and why you changed jobs. If you have a good reason for every change, doesn't matter how long you were there. If a company finds the jumping a problem, then you know its not a fit for you. Good luck!

I was a recruiter a lifetime ago and I'll just say it really depends on what the company is looking for and what they value. If I saw someone with only a year at several companies, I'd see them as someone who gets bored easily and a flight risk. Tbh I wouldn't see them as dependable. That's just the truth of the matter unless the company doesn't care because they just need people to execute fast. That's my quick take!

@John971 This is what I was worried about. I have compelling stories about each of my moves. For what it's worth I am looking for a job that will be a long term fit. Jumping can get tiring and not something I want to be doing every couple yrs
