If a person is doing second job then want to change within 6 month becoz of moneywise then should the person change her/his job or not?

Definitely you could change the job in 6 months if you have an issue of staying back the company. If the issue can not be sorted out then better quit. Other wise it would not be advisable for anyone to leave with in 6 months. Not at all a good idea.

We could grow only when we stick on to a particular company.

Hi Jyoti!

Frequently changing the job is called Job Hopping and is never appreciated in any industry for key positions.

If it is for the first time, it is acceptable but if it is a trend then it reflects on your CV and this question will always arise during your interview as to why? and if the reason is only money then never go for it. It hampers your growth in the long run. Try to be a bit stagnant. stagnant her does not mean stay for 5 years but yes you may very well remain in the organization for 1.5 or 2 odd years. Mind it that doesn't reduce the chance for drawing a good salary.

Once you'll leave the organization after a span of 1 to 2 years you'll definitely get a good hike.

this is just a short explanation! for more queries feel free to contact

Eventough different people have different opinions, the person himself should decide to move or not depending on the qualification & experience.

What ever it is we as HR people must not forget Money is a main motivation factor.

therfore if the person can get the same exposure (or may be a better) & good working conditions... It s an opportunity he has got.

Hi Jyoti,

Changing the job within six months is not a good idea.

First you cannot accumulate leaves
Secondly, On probation you cannot get leaves, you have to go on LWP.
Thirdly, you also loose gratuity.
Fourth, you are also going to loose seniority.

If this is for the first time than it is advisable otherwise NO.

Thanks and regards

I dont think that changing a job within 6 months will affect CV in any case. Why dont we take it the other way.......it is because of the qualification and knowledge that a person gets a job and dont forget the major attraction MONEY. Morover this is how only one gets an exposure in varous fields.

So if someone gets a job within a 6 months or may be early than that, i dont see any issues in that.

But yes keep learning and keep updating yourself so that you cant be beaten up by anyone when it comes to knowledge. And yes decide an age lets say 30, 32 or whatever after which try to be stable.

Changing the job in 6 months is not good.
Every Industry will see for longterm player.
If you move for 6 month you will not come under purview of longterm Player.
I Can agree with thoughts of Jyothi.
You loss everything.
And one more thing is if you work in one Industry for along time, you will have command all activities what exactly you are involving.
Then your level of confidence will be boostup.
Then automatically you can become what exactly you want be.

hai jyothi,

I agree with all the opinions.

I too sugest that changing a company within 6 months that too bcoz of money is not at all good idea.

We as hr's when we are screening resumes we also check the candidates stability.
If within 2 years he changed 2 to 3 jobs then he is not at all good candidate.
Bcoz after undergoing a long recruiting process if a candidate quits with in 6months then it will be a big loss to organization.
Anyways this is my opinion.

Thanks & Regards,

We all know that changing jobs within 6 months affect our CV, but if our job profile is not satisfactory, what else to do ? But my sincere advise "Dont switch over companies for money sake" , then u will be the looser.

Think Twice

Act Smart

Best wishes

As mentioned by you. I understand that this is your 2nd job.
What was the duration of your stay in your first organization / job?
What was your salary then when you left your previous job and what is your present salary and also, what is the salary in offer?

Excellent ..Your views are appreciated….See the way I look at it…( w.r.t training and development industry )…

My Vision is to become a Training Manager…

First,I did my BE ( IT) in Mumbai…always knew that I am not a techie guy….But would be happy Management Profile..

Shifted to Bangalore….Did my MBA in Mrkt / IB.Join….A Quality training company …..Where I was involved in open-house trainings,in-house training,conferences and certification.

At this job got to learn on:
. CMMI Level training
. Project Management and Software estimation training
. Testing ( CSTE,CSQA ) training
. ITIL, ITSM training
. Six Sigma and Process trainings

After 9 month of job here …got into only Project Management and Software estimation training in a new company …..where I was involved in sales, Hiring of sales personnel

Then on contract basis worked for 4 month..where I was involved . Soft Skills . Innovation skill. Team building Skills . Leadership Skills. Out - Bound Training with companies like dale,door,ETKF…

Today …I am working on technical training related company …..Technical ( Microsoft, Oracle, Symantec and others ).Since, this area of technical trainings ( sales ) is difficult ..i wish to stick around for 1 years more.

Also, know doing Diploma in Training and development ( ISTD ) and giving training at MBA college on B2B business and soft skills ( on week ends ) .. ..

If you see the journey..Imp thing is to learn:
. Process of Companies
. Business skills (industry knowledge)
. Team skills
. Network (You know people in the market)
. Do certifications…Upgrade yourself….
. Learn to negotiate your salary w.r.t your skill ( not qualification )

….. It does not matter….how many jobs you change!….Change your profile in a structured manner and in the same industry is imp.( Work in the same industries ….do not change industries very often )

Always, remember “They don’t hire you for the sake of it…or because you have qualification ..They hire to MAKE PROFIT’s”
