I'm a new dev who has been in my first job out of university for 9 months. Because of family history of unemployment, I always interview at least twice a month to keep my skill at academic CS trivia nobody uses sharp. It also gives me reasons to not go to stupid team lunches.
At the 6 month point, the offers started getting better. I have now earned three offers which have +15K annually on what I currently make.
I turned them down because I am afraid of the resume problem of job hopping. I didn't want to jump after six months and then look to jump again at the 1.8 months of total experience mark (which is when I am told the offers get even better).
Is there a way around this? Can one enjoy the enormous benefits of job hopping in a way without getting the job hopping taint on one's resume?
