Job Hopping in Resumes

Through no fault of their own, many job seekers evolve a resume that makes them look like a job hopper. Employers and recruiters look for this and are quick to blame the job seeker as an unstable worker. This label, or stigma, can vanish with proper formatting, structuring and combinational techniques. You do not have to live with this resume defect. Other job seekers apologetically explain why they left and give plausible reasons. Some even assume that these frequent job changes are industry-specific, common occurrences. This is a defensive approach that weakens the resume. Other corrective solutions are available. Perception is everything. An astounding 46% of job seekers are overlooked if it ‘appears’ to have a job hopping problem.
