Short n simple....
Since leaving school.. in 11 years I've lived in 4 different places and had bouts 8 jobs...
Is this normal or not??
Me: one job, 36 years, lots of travel, temporary assignments in foreign countries, ever increasing responsibility for technical leadership. Made bank, invested well, retired early. Now I read, pursue hobbies, and fuck off as the spirit moves me.
An unexpected retirement highlight was IIN. During my career, I avoided people like all of you. That was too bad. The diversity of life is a good experience when your reference group includes pervs, fuck ups, and people with personality disorders that are happy anyway. This place is kind of a party. I like it here.
I was very much like that in my youth as jobs were plentiful then. I worked in a bakery, Building company, van driver, self employed musician in a band and green grocers, all before I was 20 years old. I then settled down and went to college and then a career. Keep going, something will turn up for you.
All the best.
Seems normal as long as you're able to take care of yourself throughout it all.
Sounds normal to me. Ive had 3 jobs but lived in the same place for the last 12 years since i graduated hs.
ive had the same job since 94 but in dozensa different places levels paygrades and companies
It looks better on a resume to have a few jobs you held down for a few years. My first job was in the field I studied and I was there for two years before moving on. Made valuable connections and all my experience is relevant to wherever I apply.
Then again I'm lucky my parents didn't toss me out the house at 18 like a lot of people apparently experience in certain other countries.
it's absolutely normal to live in a lot of different places and have a lot of different jobs. i plan to do the same thing
Not long after finishing my apprenticeship I took up contract engineering work. The average contract was 6 to 12 months and specialising in aerospace took me all over the place.
A great life with bags of variety and a good chance to skip the office politics!
So yes I did live in many different towns and worked on many sites, retired now (71) have been for three years, actually miss it!
Shit. I’ve probably had 20 jobs. I’m always down to move on.
But I’ve only lived in one place on my own.
I’ve had loads of jobs too, yet to find my niche I guess. This July I’ll celebrate one year at my current one (hopefully), my first ever jobiversary at 24.
I lived alone once too and hated it, I creep myself out when I’m by myself too much.
