How many jobs have you had in your working life?

I have been working for a little over 2 years and in that time I have had 5 jobs. 2 were only for a couple of weeks and the other 3 were more serious and long term. The longest I have worked in a place is 9 months, the second was 7 months. How many jobs have you had in your life, how long have you been working, and what's the longest length of time you have worked at one place?

wow. that is a question to make me think. I think (if I added right) it has been 19 jobs. I may be off by one or 2 -lol I have had about 5 that were about a year long. quite a few that were under that (mostly when I was younger) I have had a few about 5 that lasted about 3 years (2 of those were seasonal- so I worked the summer but had the winter off but for 3 years- 1 was part time in addition to my full time job now) I have had a couple that I started part time- went to full-time -found a better full -time job and went back to part time- so I worked 2 jobs most of my life. My present job- I have been at for 10 years and I have worked about 3 part time jobs also while here- the last one was working at a kennel for 3 years. but I left that job about 3 1/2 years ago and this is the longest I have only worked 1 job. Now I am trying to supplement my income online... not going as well as I would like but not bad either..lol

i've had about 6 jobs, but only one was i there for 8 years. all the othere jobs were part time, just to make a little more money for spending money.

8 years? Wow! I can't imagine working somewhere for that long? Did you enjoy working there?
