Q&A: What Popular Career Advice Will Be Outdated 10 Years from Now?
“Don’t switch jobs. Stick it out for as long as you can. Employers want to see commitment.”
That may have been good advice for your parents, but it’s just not relevant to the world we’re living in anymore. Employers are starting to care less and less about whether or not you’re stayed with a company for an “acceptable” length of time as job-hopping is becoming more common.
And that’s great news. Now, workers have more freedom to “play the field” and figure out the right fit for them before they settle into something more permanent.
So, if you’re sitting there thinking, “I hate my job,” then do something about it. Don’t stick around just for the fear of looking like a “flake.” If you don’t like your job, find something you can actually look forward to doing every day. If not, move along.
