Why are you thinking about moving? You’re in real danger of building a radioactive resume with so many moves. I don’t want to waste my time with someone who might stick around for a year or two? I want to. Build a team of committed people who buy into the vision of what we’re trying to build. Session players need not apply

Just wondering, how do you differentiate between people who really do hop around, vs people who are doing temporary positions? I have a friend who did a 1yr rotational, didn't get an offer after, and completed another 1yr rotational with another firm, and now is full time there?

Usually after two hops it can look like a liability, but depends on the company, if they have a need for a specific skill they might risk it. Your FT experience is what??

2 years in tech, 2 years in consulting

Yes. Everything pre-college is ignore, but I like hiring people who want to build something, and a resume that bounces around a lot suggests that you’re just there to take something

So up to and including consultant level is fine? Trying to get to an organization (Deloitte *cough) I would be happy staying at for 3-5 years

What’s the average time that you stay at your previous company excluding that 1year 2month?

10 months at a tech firm while I was in college (had to leave they role as the got annoyed at schedule conflict with school). 1 year at a start up next. 1 year 2 months at a consulting firm. Going on 1 year at my current firm. 4 years full time, mistakenly counted my internship

Take responses against job hopping with a grain of salt. The answer is really industry specific. For example, if you Google the average tenure of employees at top US tech companies, you'll find that it is <2 years. You're an analytics consultant and I'm going to assume that you might be interested in Biz intelligence, DS, AI, programming, etc. The tech industry is often innovating with new best practices and softwares, so job hopping may be the best way to keep growing within your career. Maybe you tell a hiring manager that you just helped a startup scale ABC product across 3 countries, and that you would be able to build upon this expertise only by moving to this new company. It's all about how you frame your story. Look at Bozoma Saint John's trajectory. She has a new job like every 2 years. Set your own career KPIs and use them to influence your trajectory. Try not to put yourself in a position where you are job searching due to desperation or termination. This way, you won't have to worry much about the hiring managers that reject you for moving around often. And if you see a pattern of rejection, get feedback, take a break from job searching, and use that time to grow before you start searching again.

Don’t worry about it too much. I’m on my 5th after 6 years. Some may be concerned if you hop too quickly because some people who are hired into roles that they aren’t qualified for, can skate by for 1-2 years. On the flip side - sometimes hopping around means you are in high demand, especially if you have strong recs/referrals

Having been a highering manager in two firms and talking through hiring philosophies with many clients, I can tell you hopping around too much doesn’t communicate being in demand - it communicates being on the struggle bus. Either you can’t hack multiple jobs or just don’t want to commit to something larger than yourself. Getting promoted once or twice by people who really know you actually shows demand
