What is meant by job hopping? If I change my employer will it be considered job hopping?

My idea of "job hopping" is switching jobs every few weeks or months. This shows you are kind of unreliable. Whether it is you being tired of the job and leaving or you keep getting fired it sends up red flags to employers. Why take the timw to train someone that may not even stay long enough to cover their costs.

There is no strict definition of it in terms of how often you can change jobs before someone would consider it "job hopping" - it depends on the industry really.

As it pertains to the trucking industry, which has a massive turnover rate of about 100%, job hopping would be someone that changes jobs more than once a year or so. Outside of the trucking industry it would depend upon the industry and what is considered a normal amount of time to stay at a job.

Brett,

Has it about right. Basically, chasing after "rainbows," and looking at a company as "the grass is always greener" attitude, will get you nowhere. To borrow from the Army..."The BEST unit in the Army is the one you just left, and the one you want to go to." The BEST trucking company is the one you just left, and the one you want to go to.
