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 hate calling parents! What helps you out in making parent contact?

like

I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.

Does anyone here have experience working as a PM for a non-profit? I have an interview with one that I would love to be a part of. I can’t find much information online regarding salary expectations. I am willing to take a pay cut to join a non-profit I am passionate for. That being said - I’m trying to balance knowing it may be lower with not accepting a low-ball offer due to lack of information.

Need some advice: For context I’m an engineering student - I’ve gotten a role as a business analyst for a health tech startup that just raised their series A (10M) and is rapidly scaling.They brought me on part time until I finish up school in the spring. I negotiated to begin my vesting schedule now and I absolutely love the company and product-only problem is that I am losing all motivation for school…especially since it’s engineering. I’m going to finish-but how do I make it easier to balance
