The Pros and Cons of Job Hopping [Infographic]

There is a huge debate about job hopping. Whereas some people say job hopping affects your career negatively there are others who believe that it’s not a problem at all. In fact, some people go as far as to say that it actually makes you more employable. All of this confusion is created by the difference in opinions regarding job security.
