Hot Take Hump Day: Hoppy Candidates

Happy Hot Take Hump Day! 🌶️ Let's talk about hoppy candidates 🐰🏃‍♂️.

It is my strong and firm belief that we shouldn't immediately discount a candidate's resume just because they've had a few job changes in recent years.


  • Career changes and job hopping can be a sign of growth and development.

  • In the post-pandemic world, many have experienced layoffs, furloughs, and the ups and downs of the economy.

  • Taking time off for family or personal reasons has also become more common.

  • The candidate could have just had a really terrible boss or was experiencing a toxic work culture! (And kudos to them for not sacrificing their mental health for a job.)

I challenge all recruiters and hiring managers to use empathy when looking at these resumes - we don't know their circumstances without speaking with them.
