Job Hopping

Has the negative stigma tied to job hopping a thing of the past?

Particularly, in tech where the ratio of open positions to qualified applicants is so high.

Is the culture norm of about 2 years still in place, or has it gotten shorter and will it continue to get shorter over time?

Does the generational aspect have a strong part in this and does that come into play during the evaluation process?

“Oh, Chris is a , that’s to be expected.”

Or if the current hiring manager has a history of job hopping, the applicant also gets a pardon.

We occasionally hear about the “here and now”, rather than I’m in it for the long haul to climb the corporate ladder.

Instead of asking: “where do you see yourself in X years, should the question now become, where do you see yourself in Y months?”
