Serial job hopping not the stigma it was considered

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Many people out there are looking for a new job and it’s been a long-held belief that working different jobs over a short period of time carries a negative stigma, now according to a new survey that may not be the case anymore.

A CareerBuilder survey showed that job-hopping is being done more by employees and accepted more by employers. More than half of employees surveyed said they have hired a job hopper. And nearly one third of all employers say they expect workers to job hop.

By the age of 35, 25% of workers held five or more jobs. But employers seemed to be less accepting of job hopping among older workers.
