Job Hopping – Is there a Right Way?

Job hopping has traditionally been frowned upon. It is estimated to cost an employer from 1.4 to 3 times the employee’s salary to recruit and train and new employee. So a $50,000/year employee is costing the employer from $75,000 to $150,000 to recruit and train the employee. Seeing it from this point of view, gives you a new perspective on your value and worth to an employer. It used to be more commonplace to work at a position until you retired. Now, due to economy, benefits and other shifts in the workplace, we are seeing employees who move from one job to another more frequently. If you are working with a short term job history or are considering leaving your current employment for a lateral move to another employer, the linked article can provide you pros and cons to weigh in your decision making process.
