Resume Question: Multiple Jobs(Posted by poochie on 4/22/13 at 3:00 pm)
In a general sense, how bad does having multiple jobs listed on your resume look? History is history, but I'm just asking. I've had four "real jobs" that I've had since college:
#1 was for a year (first job i could get), left to work back home.
#2 was for 6 years back in my hometown with a company i worked for while in college. Work got slow and I was laid off.
I took job #3 and it just wasn't a good fit with the hours/travel and I was only there for 8 months before I took job #4.
Love job #4, been here for two years and wish I could stay here for 30 more years, but unless something big changes, will likely get laid off again.
So that's four in ten years.
Would this look like job hopping to a potential employeer? It sucks that it's happend that way but it is what it is. I also have good references from all four.
