Is it ok to jump every 1 year during initial year of your career in product to find your stability? I have 1.8 YOE

It's normal.
My 1st switch after 1 year.
After 5 years i have offer from big 4 , investment banks , product base company.

All depends on your skills.

Good answer

If u r jumping only for money than its not wise. But if u are seeking quality work and experience and not getting that in current role then jumping is fine

No need of that. If they have called u means they need u. Next everything depends on ur skills


I think it's pretty normal but I would try to stay in one position for like 2 years to have more growth...

I agree. It's fine if it would normally take you a year but don't make it as your "definite rule" stay long if you need to, stay at least a year if you have to. You're looking out for your interests and that's a good thing. All the best!

Its normal. Especially in todays day and age.

Hi fishes🙂 👋🏻 I got an offer from Larsen & Toubro Infotech today for the position of 365 Functional Consultant.
But the designation offered is 'Senior Engineer - Cloud Services and Software' whereas in PwC my designation: 'Technology Consultant' & designation of offer in hand(IBM) :'Advisory Consultant'.
So will IBM consider my Larsen & Toubro Infotech offer as a counter offer?
My fear is whether they will say 'you r offered a different role hence we cant consider'.Will it matter that much?


What will be my in hand salary?
