We often hear employment gaps in a resume can hurt a candidate, but did you know long-term employment at the same employer can also be perceived negatively? Having stable employment is certainly not a bad thing. However, if it is with the same employer and your resume doesn’t show you made progress, it is not an impressive mark for a potential employer viewing your resume. When a candidate has stayed with the same employer for many years, it can be considered in two ways: 1) You are lucky to have found a good employer and enjoy what you do, or 2) You are afraid to take on new challenges and do not like stepping out of your comfort zone.
