Calling on Boston Herald's Rochelle Stewart

When did job hopping (a negative) turn into job switching (a positive)?

Rochelle Stewart has the answer. She's a writer for the Boston Herald's education section and a contributor to WickedLocalJobs.com.

We rang Rochelle to get her take on the latest job search trend: shortening tenures and frequent career changes. With job security decreasing, it's not enough to stay at one company for a lifetime. People need something more -- and they're leaving to get it.

But does the stigma of short-term employment still haunt resumes? Rochelle explains how job seekers can structure application materials, change fields and successfully advance careers without hurting themselves later.

She also shares tips on how to prepare for change while maintaining current job performance or satisfaction, and how job switching affects companies and managers in the long run. It's a jam-packed podcast, so listen here, download to enjoy later and share with friends and colleagues!
