    There has been a lot of hopping earlier.It may have come down now but still those who can hop are still doing it.Does it add value or deplete value?

    Almost any employer is going to look at term of employment at each location. If it doesn't meet their requirements as of what a steady on the job employee should be, then it is going to hurt.

    If you mean several different jobs with different companies it demonstrates a lack of ability to stay with things that are started and so this is bad.
    If you mean being able to to multiple tasks within one company then this shows ambition and a willingness to learn and is good.

    It depends how you do it.

    Bad job hopping is when you just go between similar low level roles.

    However job hopping UP the ladder is practically accepted nowadays.

    I agree with Oli....most want fault someone for trying to better themselves and if good reasons are given for the changes in employers than it's accepted nowadays. However, repeatedly seeing the same types of jobs with only 2-3 months at a time shown, that's bad.  I wouldn't hire them.
