The article linked below shares an interesting perspective on candidates who have changed jobs frequently. This perspective has some merit in our industry, especially given the staff reduction and consolidation we have seen in banking the past several years. I often see a pattern with people who are at a particular bank for a number of years and then make a move. Many times, the first move does not work out (culture, expectations, decision made too quickly), and the person will move one or two more times before settling into an optimal situation. As with anything, qualify this view with common sense and good interviewing, but don’t be closed-minded to candidates based solely on the job changes.
