Job hopping can really hamper one's career, as people who have five or more jobs over 10 years put off bosses, reveals a new study.
Almost 90 percent of employers said they were likely to drop an applicant from consideration for a position if they thought the person had moved around too much during their working life and bosses see "job hoppers" as someone who will not stick around, the Daily Express reported.
AdvertisementRecruitment firm Robert Half interviewed 200 bosses from UK companies about how many positions they considered acceptable before they began to suspect a potential recruit might lack staying power and found that one in three (36 percent) of the executives said they were "very likely" to look badly on an applicant they considered a job hopper, and 53pc were "somewhat likely", with the remainder not concerned by the amount of jobs a person had had.
Phil Sheridan, senior managing director at Robert Half UK said that the job market has rebounded in recent years, and employers understand that job candidates may have had short stints in some positions, however businesses look for people who will be committed to the organisation, can contribute to the company, and help it reach its short and long-term goals.
