    Job hopping as far as my experience is never and will never be viewed positively.

    If you are a job hopper, you better be able to explain the reasons why. If you are hopping jobs going after the big dollar, that is a red flag. Employers want to know (feel secure) that you will be committed to the position and the company.

    If you are leaving because it wasn’t a fit, or you didn’t agree with the company direction, etc. Take some time to evaluate yourself, what type of job you are really seeking. If you don’t you will eventually not be considered by any employer, except those just wanting a warm body as a serious contender for a position.

    Now there is a time when job hopping might be viewed differently. When it is the result of a transfer of a spouse. Employers understand that because of 2 career families, this is very common.

    Otherwise, stay a minimum of 2 plus years, and take every advantage of growth in that position.
