A year isn’t very long. I would hesitate to hire someone with a history of that unless they had really valid reasons for doing it. Like a relocation, layoffs, etc. It’s a lot of time and effort to invest in training someone and if they won’t be here in a year, it’s not worth it. If it’s just you chasing the money or new clients, we lose by hiring you —because what makes me think you won’t do it to us?

Unless you're a freelancer, you need a 3 year gig someplace so prospective employers know that it's possible for you to commit to something. I would say to make it your current job, since you've already got a year in on that one. But don't pass up a great opportunity if it smacks you in the face-just make sure that one is worth staying at for 3 years.

Nah. Chase good work.

If recruiters are contacting you, it’s notAnn issue to them

Ugh. Not an*
