    I’m inclined to agree with your comment but with one exception:

    If the bulk of those job hops happen while the person was in school, I tend to show a little bit more leniency simply due to the nature of balancing work and school.

    To use myself as an example, I’ve had 10 jobs since I turned 18. But 7 of those jobs were when I was in college. After college, I spent 4 years working for one company (2 jobs, one came from being recruited for a promotion). Then I moved to a different state, where I’ve been with the same company for 3 years.

    By the broad statistic, I’m considered a job hopper. But by looking at the big picture, you see that I am a loyal employee now that I’ve settled into adult life

    I’ve had 3 jobs in less than 3 years since college. I can explain them all and had more than legitimate reasons for leaving. The first was a one year temp job, not temp to hire. The second I left after 8 months because the boss s3xuallly harassed me daily. I wasn’t looking for a new job, but a client I had from the first one owns a company and came looking for me. When job prospects were as bleak as they were in May 2009 for recent grads, of course you’ll hop from job to job! I started off making $15k less than my sister did when she graduated. Two years later, thanks to my job hoping and self marketing, I could finally say I was getting paid what I was worth. Don’t get me wrong, I could survive on that $15k less salary… with no savings.. and because I was fortunate enough to graduate with no debt and a car that was fully paid for. We job hop for SURVIVAL. If certain employers think the employees are being disloyal, how about trying to pay them a decent and fair wage?
