No one with the right mind signs a contract, with some set up about how many years (months) it will last...And no one with the right mind leaves a job just because the time is up!
It depends mostly on the human environment, on the challenges and personal preferences of that time...
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
In my previous job I just started out as a developer.
Lots to learn, longer to stay. I lasted four years.
I've been working at my current job for almost two years now and... Well, who is to say I'm going to make four?
How long I will stay at my next job depends on coworkers, salary, company culture, growth possibilities...
I PREFER a job for life though... Self-employed and making millions
I've been body shop consulting as of late. That is, I let an agency place me for 6 month contracts. I pick up a new skill at each placement and I take a month off in between contracts and fill any learning gaps with personal projects...or travel out of the country. It's also created a web of contacts/full time offers so that I can return to full time salary if that becomes necessary. So far so good! No more late nights fighting prod fires.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
