Job hopping! 🐇💼
It’s all about switching jobs to advance your career–quickly.
Some say it’s the best thing since remote work,
And others say it’s a red flag that you’ll never shake off.
So how do you know if it’s right for you?
Read on to find out!
This week, we’re jumping into:
🦘 when to job hop

🏗️ the future of the construction industry
Now let’s hop to it.
When should you job hop? And when should you avoid it?
💰 Hop For Higher Pay
Our co-founder Jonathan’s leap from Snapchat to Google to Cisco wasn't just a change of scenery. Each move came with an upgraded paycheck. The lesson? Hop, but make sure it's towards a higher paying gig.
🚀 Don’t Hop Horizontally
If you're in a $75K role, jumping to a similar position with the same pay isn't worth it. But if the jump includes a promotion and a $90K paycheck, then that’s a leap towards success!
🌍 Expand Your Network
Job hopping isn’t just about compensation. You’ll expand your professional network in another company, which can lead to even more opportunities.
🤔 Quick Exit, No Regrets?
What if you've only been at a company for less than 6 months? Is the hop justified? If the role isn’t what you expected and you don’t see a future there, it’s okay to seek greener pastures.
📖 The Story Behind the Hop
Some employers view job hoppers as unreliable or unstable, so no matter what, make sure you have a good reason for moving.
🔮 The Long Game
While early-career hops can be a good thing, as your career progresses, adding some longer-term roles to your resume gives a sense of stability.
Some benefits, like employee retirement contributions, often require a certain tenure at a company to fully vest.
Job hoppers might not stay long enough to enjoy these.
🚫 Toxic Workplace? Hop Out
If your job makes you miserable, whether you’ve been there for 2 months or 5 years, don't hesitate to hop. Your well-being is more important than any job.
Your career is a journey, not a destination, and every hop can be a stepping stone to success if done strategically.
So before you hop to greener pastures, look into trends in your industry, understand how others in your position hopped successfully, and make sure the switch is justified!
