Job Hopping: Why A Million Jobs Is a Good Thing

Let’s face it, no one sails through their work life with grace and ease. We stumble, we fail, we struggle and we learn some pretty great lessons along the way.  For me, those lessons have come from 32 different, paying jobs in 21 years. You heard that right. 32.

Or better yet, look for work opportunities in countries where employment laws and work environments generally tend ...

I didn’t want to do a scathing review of the methodology behind them (though like most, I have my own opinions).  I’m more interested in what people actually learn from them. Jump on over to HRExaminer to read more.
