I am software engineer. I have changed 3 job in 3 years due to learning purpose as well as money.
So to change job in this way is it right. Or people should stay in the company for a long time. Actually some timees we think we are not in good company or big company in that case we also want to change job.
So I Want to know that what should be duration for a company.

I belong to same field and I don't think changing jobs frequently will affect the career.As long as you get sufficient knowldege gain.Learning curve should be always high, whatever company you were working with.
don't change too frequently. it might sound ok for now. but a smart hr person will screw you up. stay initially for 3 years. you will learn a lot and performance will also go up. after that take a call. you can expect rewards finanancially and careerwise. the problem with the guys since beginning of 2000 onwards is they are more focussed on money and forgetting about building a career. you stick to one company for some time. it will give weightage to your cv.
companies invest in you not just monetarily but do have plans for and on you. if you ditch them, for you it may not mean much (even the company will move on) but for both of you it will be a good opportunity lost. the company loses a trained manpower and you cannot be sure that the next one will be better than this.
work for 3 - 5 years and then take a call (that is if you are really serious about leading and managing people)

It may look good now, but is not adviceable for long run. To understand the working culture, people should be in a company mim 3 yrs and max 5 yrs,wherein you will also come to know about your position and recognition.

Changing job frequently may be harmful to your future prospectus... as i am a hr people, i suppose to ignore your resume while you hve good past education & experience history... now a days company needs more reliable employee who can stable for more & give their best to them...company could give the training as well as external education whenever require...
This is a very valid question as more and more now, people are looking for learning along with money
Switching is fine as long as you can defend it in the interview round. However everyone is very correct that you can only understand the Co. culture, working and processes if you stay for atleast 2 yrs.
This is a trade-off that you should be willing to make. Also the risk factor is quite high. Maybe the time that you chose to settle down in your dream Co. may be rejected as the interview panel is unimpressed with your reasons for constant change.
If you are considering changing again, try holding on for a bit more (atleast 2.5yrs) to get some indication of tenure/loyalty on your CV

Let me tell you about the attitude of HR.........While screening the profiles HR's look out for those candidates who are very committed and willing to grow along with the company.
No Company will be interested to invest their time and money on such a candidate as the candidate can leave them at any point of time. So friends initially u can give n number of reasons for shiftng ur jobs but after gaining a good experience this may become the black mark in ur profile.
So first try to gain knowledge and attitude and the rest will follow you

in one of my earlier jobs, the hr cum finance manager rejected a guy - the reason he had worked in 5 companies over a 5 year period (1994-95). we were freshers in the company and he was giving the reason why guys were shortlisted and why they rejected.
this 5-year 5-job guy would not give continuity and stability and we cannot plan further for the company with him - very valid then, now and always.
when in mid 20s, if you stick a company for a 3-5 year period, the company will be willing to take and train you, even if there are guys more talented and qualified than you for the single reason that they can plan long term. have this in mind before you take a leap
your raising this question also means that you are thinking what is right and what is wrong? good for you in the long term

A rolling stone gathers no moss - at the rate you are going, you have yet to acquire both the breadth and depth of the job.
From the employer's standpoint, they have yet to get a ROI in your employment and you are already out of the picture. Not a very fair practice and will catch up with you soon in your future employment at other companies.

Thanx Guys for answer.
But suppose we are in software company since 2 years and we are not getting
apraisal due to reccesion and also contract for 2.5 years in that company and we are getting chance in new company and good package . But when we leave the company then company will not give experiance letters and others things and new company need not any document. So in that case we need to change company . It will be bad for future job . please suggest me.
