Chronic job hoppers may bounce themselves out of consideration for future opportunities, suggests a new survey of chief financial officers (CFOs). Eighty-seven percent of CFOs polled said the length of time a candidate has spent with previous employers is an important factor when evaluating that person for a position with their company. The survey, developed by Robert Half Finance & Accounting, was conducted by an independent research firm and includes responses from more than 1,400 CFOs. Max Messmer, chairman and CEO of Robert Half International, noted that many job changes stem from a desire for greater challenge, which doesn’t always require changing employers.
