    Dear...........
    Stay in a job for atleast 1.5 - 2 years.
    Continuously switching jobs may have some effects.
    as a company came to know that you are nomadic in nature then your value is little bit lowered.
    As some companies want to keep their projects confidentially.
    So, they will think other wise.
    Another thing is you can create good and longlasting friendship with your colleagues....

    Hope you may understand,.........

    The most important thing is not switching the job but the time you remain in a particular company.

    Like if you switch from job in less than a year or so than it shows that you cannot stay in a company for long time.

    This will not effect you right now but can effect on long term basis, like in a three year job experience you shifted for 3 times which your CV will show than

    recruiters will have a fear in their mind that you can leave the company any time and thus they will not consider you for some responsible positions in other

    words a higher Job profile.

    As for such positions recruiters always look for a much stable person as they cannot change employees at important positions on regular intervals.

    Thus though it won't effect much in getting you a job but it can have a huge impact on your career growth.

    First of all,I would like to congratulate you for the new job offer that you have received.There are negative points in frequent switching of jobs so you should be careful this time before making a move to the new company.You should take some time,think wisely and then go for a decision.

    You can go for the new job offer.Buy before that you have to make sure that the new job offer holds better perspective as compared to the present one.You should analyze all the factors like working environment,wok culture,reputation of the company,the salary and the incentives gives,the opportunities of growth in the company and then make a decision of moving to the new company if all this fields are better.Since you have already switched twice,so analyze all the factors and then make a move.

    Switching jobs frequently reflects badly on your CV. While looking for suitable candidates, companies refrain from hiring professionals who frequently switch jobs .This is because frequent switching reflects:-


    -Lack of commitment

    -Inability to stick to one role for long
    -Being unreliable
    -Being money-minded
    -Inability to get along with people
    -Lack of clarity in job profile

    When you take up a job, try to ensure that you are getting into something which you will enjoy doing. Dont get into a job just for the sake of picking up one. You will land up into frustration and will try to switch soon.So analyze,think and then take a decision.

    Hello,

    Frequent job changes are not good for ones career graph.It reflects the whimsical mind of the person who changes job frequently.WHen you will go for interview for another company and they will see that you change jobs very frequently,it will definitely be considered as your demerit and will leave a negative mark on your profile.Dont keep on switching jobs just for the sake that the other company is going to pay to some more bucks.Rather try to concentrate on one work,and continue with it.This will provide you with good working experience and will provide you better career options.

    dear friend
    please stay in a company atleast for 1.5-2 years
    if you frequently switch then this is a negative point in your resume
    because changing 4 companies in 5 years is not good thing
    when you will this type of resume to your next company then they will think that you cant stay in one company
    means that there is some fault in you
    so not switch frequently

    hi,

    its about the confidance of your company in you.
    Stay in a job for atleast 1.5 - 2 years.
    Continuously switching jobs may have some effects.
    as a company came to know that you are nomadic in nature then your value is little bit lowered.
    Ask for the same things in the same company if you performe better.

    Thanks

    Re: What are the negative points in switching jobs frequently?

    Hello friend,

    Switching jobs is essential for growth but not very frequently. Because this reflects your unstable mind, your confused personality and your non-dedication to an organisation for a long period of time.
    You should be with a company for atleast 1 year so as to know its proper working and how the management is. Maybe once you switch a job, you don't get what you desired and the job you left provided you with what you desired but a decision taken in haste backfired. Then you are left nowhere. Your CV will not look attractive to your future employers.
    And if the job offer is a very lucrative one, then you can switch over to it with proper consultation of your mind and of people close to you. As there are times when one encounters a better job offer when already doing good.
    So see the pros and cons and then take a decision.

    All the best

    Frequently switching the jobs is not considered good as it's effect from various point of view. Firstly it does not enhance your experience. Secondly it may rise a question mark on your stability in the company as many company won't appoint you in their company. The growth opportunities in the position also gets seized due it and even the salary rise will also be affected. Adjusting to new environment is always a difficult task. So always try to stay atleast 2 years in a company. If you found no opportunities in present company then go for new company.
