There was a time, in the past when someone typically would decide on a career then in most cases this would be a job for life.
Apprenticeships were very prominent, and it was a respected and accepted way of moving forward in your career.
There were then on-going elements of on the job training and skills training.
People are now feeling more empowered and changing jobs more often.
Kate Allen, managing director at ‘Allen Associates’ says, “The school of thought which says you should remain with an employer for at least 2-3 years is rather antiquated, it simply doesn’t reflect the modern workplace.”
Bear in mind that such a CV maybe subject to greater scrutiny to ensure you were moving for the right reasons each time.
