So you are looking for a job and need to explain to the recruiter why you were looking for a job. How can you effectively explain your habit of jumping to work without disqualifying yourself as a job applicant?
The best way to explain to a recruiter is job-jumping

Well, first, you need to understand the transition to work from the recruiter’s point of view. For a recruiter, a work jump is a red flag. They are worried that if they hire you for the job, you will leave the company six months later because that is a pattern in your work history.
In order to effectively explain the job leap to the recruiter, you need to change your job history by filling in the blanks.
For each position, a recruiter wants to know:
- what did you learn?
- What did you experience?
- How did you grow your skills?
- What made you leave work and move on to the next job? (What opportunity was there in the next job? What was the next thing you intended to study there?)
Move the recruiter through the history of your work travel by talking about what you learned and how you learned even more in the next job. When you get to the current situation, you look at them and say, “For these reasons, I’m now very clear what value I can bring and what I want at work. And I’m looking to stay in place. So even though I know it looks like I was looking for work, I believe this journey brought me for a moment. This is where I have all the experience I need to stay here and do a really good job for you. “
This is what recruiters need to hear. If you follow this strategy, your habit of jumping to work will not stop you from getting your next job.
Navigating job search challenges like this can be incredibly difficult, especially if you are not sure what value you are bringing to the table as a professional. The good news is I can help.
