Does changing job often like every two years or so affects your career in future/long term?

Question arises in front of employers who care about reputation more than Business and work ethics. I have seen people of making it a habit to not stay at any organisation for more than 2-3 years.

At a senior level, yes. Junior levels - absolutely not.

It depends on what you're position is. If you are entering to mid-career, it makes sense but as a director, VP, etc., it's better to have longevity in those roles.

Not nearly as much as it used to, because I think it's a generational thing. Millennials don't tend to stay at a job for a long time before moving on. That being said, I think it's important to have a reason behind your job hopping. For instance, if you change companies every couple of years, it should be for growth or another obvious opportunity that you can justify in an interview. Also, the higher your position, the greater the impact will be.

I don't think it matters as much anymore, as long as you can explain why. I think it has become a lot more common (especially to get a salary hike) so people understand.

I just got an offer and I am planning on putting in my 2 weeks once I pass the background check at my new firm. Looking for advice on what I should be doing as I exit. What should I do in addition to downloading my professional contacts list and getting my CPE credits etc.? Do I have the option to pay and keep my phone? Really appreciate any and all advice :)

Honestly, for those of us that who work 70-80 hours a week. Is that really necessary? How much of that is really needed vs. due to inefficiency, bad planning, lack of the alignment of skill sets in terms of staffing, or most importantly bad culture and working style?

Any luck negotiating higher salary base after having accepted the offer? What would be a good reason to do so? I am 1 month away from starting

Debating holding onto the safety net I was finally able to save up during the loan freeze or throwing half of it at SL's before payments resume. Open to thoughts fellow 🐠. Inclination: hold onto it and just save at a significantly lower rate once 2022 rolls around. Additional Data Points: - Savings is just enough to fully cover 1 year of expenses in event of sudden job loss - Cannot save at the same rate once payments resume - Half my loans are at 6% interest which is a killer - No NFTs

Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
