How many jobs?

Recommended Posts

How many jobs have you had / or plan to have in your lifetime? I was reading a report that said many workers plan to move jobs about once every 3 years, and very few now stay in the same job for that long.

Had 5 real jobs, hopefully not too many more, unless I get one of those pay jumping chances. Fat chance of that though.... \:\(

In this topic, I fit right into the Japanese tradition of only having 1 job during my lifetime. I am still with the same organization I joined the day I graduated from university.

I've had 3 jobs since college, now starting to look around for number 4.

 

Just nothing to do with teaching English s'all I ask.

2 I guess, if going back to the same one twice only counts as 1.

 

Going back to a job I'd already quit...

 

Doesn't the bible say "Truly he is a fool who goes back like a dog to lick up his own vomit"?
