“You seem like a job hopper” said the potential client at the networking meeting on Monday.
“What makes you say that?” I asked.
“You’ve had a lot of jobs.”
“What would you consider a lot of jobs?”
“More than 2 or 3.” He replied.
“I’ve had a 38 year career in the video game industry. I cannot name a single person who has ever had 2 or 3 jobs and been in this industry longer than five years.” I countered.
“We’re really looking for someone who demonstrates commitment.”
This gentleman was concerned I would “job hop” out of a two month long, part-time contract.
Life is just too short to deal with that special kind of stupid.
