How long do you usually stay with your job?

June 15, 2010 4:06am CST
My usual average length of stay with my job is two to three years. There was this job that I stayed only for one year and quit because I had to review for the board exams. The next jobs I had, I stayed for three years. Its not that I get bored or anything but, my work sometimes does not challenge me anymore. How long have you been in your job? Do you stay long and plan to retire with that same job you had for like 30 years? Or do you switch often/

With nearly 4 years of working experience, I have taken two jobs. For the first one, I stayed for less than 6 months only. Actually, that work was attractive with chances of going out from time to time and even going abroad. However, I quit because of the lack of challenge and also because I can not bear the way that boss handle things. For the second one, I guess I will keep for a longer time even though nothing is perfect, regardless of working. Anyway, I like it generally...

I stay for several years usually, if I like the job. I have had one job which I did not like, and then I quit after 6 months, but that is the shortest I have ever been in any one job. I do not think I will work in the same job as I have today until I retire though, sometimes it is good for you to try new things!
