I have had 29 jobs in 27 years. When I was younger I would get bored and or resent authority. Then when i received my masters and starting obtaining professional jobs; I would just get bored once I cleaned the companies up and starting making them more revenue.

Wow, that is a low number. Good for you for having longevity.

10 in 25 years. My current one is the same as my last one, I just work in a different state. I also included temp jobs.

I see people all the time job hopping but when I try to get a job after moving I get told 3 jobs in 7 years is too many.  Before I quit my last job I had worked for the company since 2003 but at different locations.  If I had known that would also affect me getting a job I would have said no to being transfered when they needed me somewhere.

Fromy first job to my current.

Lets see

8 jobs in 27 years

I am sorry - if  I count second jobs there are 13, with "babysitting" various kids as a single job.

I have had 13 jobs in 26 years.  I've had the same job for the last 10 years, though.

2 in my life, I'll be 29 in October.


I started working at 16 as a cashier in a grocery store. I worked there 4 years. At 18 I got a job in a nursing home, worked there for 4 years (worked both jobs for two years while going to college). At 22, I had pregnancy complications with my second child and became a SAHM a month before he was born. I'll be going back to work when my 22 month old starts school.

I'm 21, I've had 2 jobs. I started working at 18.

I have a lot of volunteer work as well, and a few practicum a that I can count as job experience.
