Job hopping could be beneficial rather than a career killer


The stereotypical Millennial does tend to move jobs frequently (four or more jobs since graduating high school or college).

A survey finds 75 percent of Millennials believe changing jobs frequently has helped advance their careers.

There's the challenge of different age groups appreciating each other.

Oasis Career Planning’s Kelley O’Hara said gone are the days where you stay with an employer until you received a pocket watch for retirement.

"This group is very wise and savvy and positive about the future developments, which can be a threat to those of us holding on to old ideas," said O’Hara.

O’Hara said Baby Boomers in the workforce should keep an open mind to getting tips from younger folks, prove yourself to be creative and share your wisdom.

"We don't like the idea of changing jobs, but it's the nature of the economy now and that should be very freeing for us as well," said O’Hara.

She said this global and diverse economy welcomes innovation and is inviting for entrepreneurial behavior.

She added Millennial job hoppers are a product of the environment. Many jobs today weren't even created yet—when Millennials were in high school.
