I've had 8 different jobs in the last 12 years. I know that seems excessive, but there were two different time periods where I had 2 jobs at once. Once was when I was just out of high school, and the other was when I was pregnant with our first daughter. My most recent job, which was before the one I'm in now, I was there for 7 years. I just had a lot of back to back jobs when I was in school. lol

Hi CRsunrise! Well about your question, I remember, I started working last 2004. from the last 4 years, I have had a total of 5 jobs, 3 are being aligned on customer service fields, and 2 are basically on Quality Assurance field. My 5th job- which is my current job, I will be turning a year old this coming January 21st. I am hoping to stay here longer than I expect. I find it difficult to always change jobs, you know, all the adjustments and trainings that you should undergo to every time you are new into something is a lot of stress. But of course, if you really want to be in to something, or if you really want that job, you will do it anyway.

== == Hi There! I have three jobs ever since I graduated. First job was on a shoe company. I was task to create a program but then I ended up encoding the stock or shoe code then compute the gross income for it… I stayed there for three weeks… I can’t take it anymore that is why I resign in my first job ever. My second job was with Linksys call center account. I worked there as a Level 2 agent supporting their high end devices. I worked there for four years and so… I really love that place and the environment. People were nice and caring… I decided to resign because I feel that I need to move on for career growth. No grudges on that company, I just need to move on… lolz This is my third job, been working here for 4 months and well… its okay for the mean time… lolz… Goodluck! Thanks for the discussion! Happy New Year and Happy HOlidays! Cheers!

I held around 10 positions in the last 20 years. Some with lot of satisfaction and some with lot of "missed to do" feeling.

I have had 7 jobs in the last 16 years. At one point I had 2 jobs at one time. I had never really actually contemplated my employment history this way.
