Honestly, if each company has been more prestigious than the last AND willing to pay ~50% more on average to get you, it kinda speaks for itself, IMO

I’m in a similar boat, I work in a very fast growing tech field with limited resources that understand the technology and it’s been way easier to just interview elsewhere for promotions than to try and convince my current employer why I deserve a raise and promotion every year because that’s what the rest of the market is doing for people with my skill set.

Who cares? Who is giving you “job hopper perception”? Certainly not recruiters, because they are keep giving you offers.

1 recruiter said so, but at the rate of your offers, other hiring companies don’t seem to care right? You’ll for sure know when it starts to affect your offers— and it certainly is not now from the sounds of it.

I actually blame the 4th company trying to get you from your 3rd company. Seems pretty clear your loyalty is only to the highest bidder. Good for you, you’re only worth what someone else is willing to pay you.

Inb4 “just stay at your job” For context each role has been at a company of higher prestige. Started at 70k out of school and got between 30-60% raise each hop

A friend did this post MBA through like 4-5 roles. It was very clear when it started to catch up because while interviewers liked him, and he did get offers, the offhand comments and additional questions came too. He’s been settled in his current role for about 3 years now and will probably start seriously looking again when things improve. You don’t have to stay put forever, just somewhere long enough to prove you can commit and then start again.

Frame your job hopping as having gained more skills/responsibilities from each hop

like

Most recruiters and companies won’t care. You’re getting pay raises, which means your career is progressing. The issue for job hopping with recruiters is if you take a noticeable back-step (SM to SC; implies something bad happened) or seemingly change careers (consulting to academia to industry).

Congrats!

That significant of a bump means you aren’t being paid for what you are worth, so you deserve to pursue it but make sure that with each jump you make you are learning something new and it’s moving you towards a long term career goal you want to achieve. Also know that chasing the money may catch up to you when you could be forced to take less money for a job you really want down the line, so live below your means during this phase if possible.

Just say you have commitment issues.

Cash is KING. One recruiters loss will be another recruiters gain — you being the asset 🤙🏽
