• Job-hopping is the practice of constantly switching jobs or even careers, usually with the primary motivation of making more money.
  • Usually, you will not job-hop into something that is along a very clearly defined path and that aligns with your aspirations and personal brand. In this way, job-hopping is the antithesis of Fresh PASSION.

  • I don’t think you should stick around in an environment that is stifling or wrong for you, but you should make sure you are jumping into something new that will truly benefit you and help you grow your personal brand.

  • How can you make sure you are making a move that is in line with your aspirations and personal brand?

    • Try not to make any rash decisions, and don’t jump at this first opportunity that comes along.

    • Trust your gut; it will tell you whether the job is really in line with your aspirations or is just a quick fix to get out of the bad situation you find yourself in.

    • Look for other opportunities within your current organization; there may be positions available that are a better fit for you and your goals.

    • Think long-term; waiting until the right job comes along, even though it will be difficult, will serve you better than having a résumé sprinkled with one poor match after the other.
