8 Reasons You Should Consider Hiring a Job Hopper


Many recruiters will refuse to even consider hiring a job hopper (usually) because…

  • “They’re clearly disloyal.”
  • “They absolutely must be a trouble-maker.”
  • “They’re obviously lazy and fickle.”

Balderdash! In my experience, job hoppers are some of the most appealing candidates out there! And here’s why…

1. They are risk-takers.

Deciding to embark on a new career, within a new company, is a risk.

Will I fit in? Will I be able to do the job? Will the management team like me?

The “easy” option would be to stick with what you know (unless what you know is truly terrible).
