If you're not getting the progression that you deserve and your skills are peaking every 2 years, you ought to move. More and more people understand this. And frankly, anyone looking to fill a position is more interested in the right person to do the job and less about whether your completed 18 months, 24 months or more in a role. If your tenure in every role you've held is ridiculous (under 12 months), however, then it's a different story.

EY1- if you have a good story behind your move, it's not. What the likelihood that you will find a role immediately, as you complete 16 months in a role. Typical, it takes a few weeks, sometimes months to find a new role.

I’d love to find a place that I can last 20 years honestly

It’s a unique experience. You know the organization and the players, allowing you to focus on your job. Less stress in my opinion and if you are at the right org, a chance to move up. I spent 11 yrs at my last company, 2007-2018. It was an experience working through the recession, helping them thrive in the aftermath, and ultimately getting out when middle management shit the bed. It’s also why I’m not too concerned about a massive recession right now. Some warning signs have surfaced, but I feel those were created by Donnie 2 Scoops instead of real economic weakness.

In same boat. Been trying to stay 3 years or more to give that particular organization a chance. Getting pigeon holed in a role is one of the worst feelings, at least for me. Once you stop learning and are not being challenged, I believe it is time to move on. We’ll see how things go here but I would be shocked if it is any different.

I think 2 years is actually the point where I'm not concerned about it. But it really depends on where you are applying. Consulting firms and agencies probably would care if you did that your entire career. Some industry folk may shy away when most of their employees have been around 5+ years on average. I think it really depends on the company culture. It helps if you have a couple of longer stints of 4+ years somewhere in your resume so you can tell that story that you will stock around for the right fit

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

One of my biggest takeaways from this whole situation is that the Wall Street Journal is a top, top source of daily news. Content, speed, minimal bias.

Anyone else still have the pinned post about the A wanting to WFH? Super irrelevant now (and tbh I find all pinned posts annoying and wish we could opt out...)?
