I swear I've posted a thread like this before. But I can't find it so here is another one. My situation. Every few years I get bored and I start looking at what else is out there. I'm not looking too hard, I really like my job after all. But I still look. Today I found something I'm interested in applying for, I go to update my resume and I just can't fit anything in anymore. I have a lot of job history. A lot of it comes in the past 5 years. Longest I've had a job was 2.5 years. I left that one for money (30% pay increase). I left that next job after a little more than a year cause it sucked and to be closer to my girlfriend (soon to be wife). And now this current job I've had now for a year and 2 days and I'm already looking around. This time, it's just I'm sick of the commute (70ish miles one way). The job I have now has some great things going for it, the pay is great for South Dakota, I've learned a lot, I like who I work with. But it has some big drawback in addition to the commute. The pay may be great, but it comes once a month, even a year into this job and I can't budget right for 1 paycheck a month. Also there is just the fact that I'm sick of being everyone's whipping boy. I get yelled at all the time by teachers (FYI, just because someone can teach doesn't mean they are smart) for dumb things like the internet being broken. Really, the whole internet I say? Usually they just flipped off their wifi and are too dumb to turn it back on. Despite the switch being in plain sight, the LED's not being on and Windows reporting that their connection has been disabled. Students aren't much better. It took less than 24 hours for 3 kids to drop their new netbooks and shatter the glass on them. I almost lost it on those kids. Had to take their machines and kick the kids out before someone got hurt. So yeah, I'm tired of my job. I guess the question I'm asking (if you are still reading this long post) is this: How bad does it look for a guy to be constantly switching jobs? And does anyone else do the job shuffle like I do it?
