    About 5, but the most important one I've had is being a mom!

    I've had six different jobs and they've all had their good and bad points to them.

    I think eight since I graduated from college, Maybe, five part-time jobs when I was still a student.  It's not that I have a particular wander lust, but it seems that if I work in tech, things keep changing around me, and I have to keep up.

    I'm still in college and I've already changed jobs 7 times. I seriously get bored staying at the same job for more than 3 months. I like learning new things and constantly being exposed to new environments; it literally kills me to stay rooted to one job for long. Though, I definitely gotta fix this habit now that I'm graduating and need a stable income.

    In my adult life, I've had 5 jobs, the last one lasted 35 years.

    I had 5 jobs before I launched my own business. The first four jobs had a combined tenure of 8 years, while the last one lasted for 15 years. I was happy in my last job but I felt that I should be on my own.
    Job hopping was frowned upon during my active career but I couldn't help changing the jobs for bettering my career. At least that was my perception (or excuse, if you would like to call it so!)

    I have just left University, but I've always done summer jobs and intern ships. To date however I'd say that I've had around 7-8 jobs in my life and I am just 20 haha.

    Probably ten or eleven in the past 40 years.  I spent a lot of time raising my girls between jobs.

    At age 21, I've had 3. I remember reading that most Americans have had 8 by the time they reach40. Fascinating, isn't it?
