Longest Job You Have Held

    What is the longest you have ever been at a job? I have been out of school for just about a decade now and am with my third employer. I am nearing five years with the same employer, which is the longest time I have ever been at one place.

    Two years at Duke, two years at OSU, and over a year now at MIT. I will probably stay at this job until I finish up my master's degree (another 3 years going part-time). Pretty pathetic!

    Wow, this is a very interesting thread in that it points out the differences between today's employment and that of our parents (many of whom, like my father, have worked at the same place for over 20 years).

    My longest so far was 4 years at Cap City. :biggrin:

    Interesting thread.

    I am getting close to 7 years with my current company.
    When I was younger I would be lucky to last two years in a job.
    My resume took two pages and just to list employers with not much information in between.

    Once you get married and/or buy a house you settle down.

    Does having a lot of jobs say something about you or the economy?

    In my 11th year right now.

    And once you have kids! If the wife and I didn't have kids, I would be in my 14th year in a position out in Phoenix. But in fall '93 when the old + sign came back on the pregnancy test, the search for a position back in Ohio where we could raise our family began.
