Job Jumper

A person who changes jobs repeatedly in a relatively brief period of time. Companies frequently shy away from hiring job jumpers because job jumping may indicate that the applicant has an inability to commit to a single career, has difficulties with co-workers, or has some other impediment to being a good employee. A job jumper is also called a job hopper.
