    Default How many jobs have you had?

    And have you ever worked outside of the field you are in now?

    What do you think of people who hop between different fields of work instead of adopting a single career trajectory?

    Yes. I did residential internet technical support for a large provider for several years. While I was finishing school I worked in a bank call center doing support for online banking. Both jobs paid well and had good benefits, especially the bank. I started working in health care before I graduated and have been there ever since.

    I see people hop between fields but I think this is a positive thing. I think if a person can do it and wants to get out of the industry they work in currently, they should.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Just two as I've been working for only three years. Sadly, I have no field, yet. As for others hopping between careers, they know what's best for them, me thinks.

    I've had three not counting jobs in college. If I count those, it's 9.

    I think they probably don't progress as well.

    ...five?

    I would kill a lot of people to continue my first job. A lot. You have no idea.

    There's not much loyalty on either side anymore but I'm not entirely sure who started that knife fight.
