How to handle job hopping and limited exposure questions during interviews?

For a long time in my professional career, I have often joined jobs without engaging in a rigorous assessment of the job roles. Being a young professional at the very onset of my career, I was eager to hop onto any opportunity that would land in front of me. My primary motive at that time was to pick up on-site skills and hands-on experience. In the pursuit of gaining first-hand work experience in a number of different roles, I have switched jobs often in my younger days.

Though it may appear that I was unable to focus on any one job for long, the truth is it was very challenging finding a permanent role to grow in.  I went on this journey giving myself exposure to as many opportunities and fields that I can. I believe in taking some time to figure out exactly where to go, instead of rushing through the decision and regretting later.

Right now, I am at a juncture in life where I can have a long-term vision in terms of my professional and personal life. Before applying for this role, I thoroughly researched the nature of my work, the qualities needed to be successful in the field, and what prospects the field holds. It is only after ticking many boxes that I decided to go ahead with it. Now I feel way more confident about my ability to serve in this role. I understand the needs and demands of the work better than I did for any job in the past. 

I do not in any way regret leaving the jobs, I did not consider them suitable for me. At the same time, I am grateful for the experience those positions have given me. I feel much more confident about my problem-solving skills now because of the varied situations I have found myself in over the past years. All the previous jobs have given me direction in some way and now I feel confident about the direction of my professional career. The feeling of being directionless do not affect my job performance anymore. I feel ready to move ahead in the path that I have chosen after a series of trials and errors. 

How has changing jobs affected your career?

    Pek çok kişinin takipçi sayın alma hizmetinden haberi olmadığını düşünerek bu yazıyı
    kaleme
    almak istedik. Özellikle sosyal medya hesapları üzerinden gerek satış
    yaparak gerekse de reklam gelirleri ile para kazanmak isteyen kişiler
    için takipçi sayısı oldukça önemlidir.
    Takipçi sayısı düşük olan bir hesabı takip etmek
    ister misiniz?
    Pek çok kişi bu soruya yanıt olarak hayır demektedir.

    edilme şansı çok daha yüksektir. Bu nedenle oluşturduğunuz sosyal medya hesabınız
    için takipçi satın al hizmetleri sunulmaktadır.
