Topic : Some people think that changing jobs periodically is good. What is your opinion?
• 目前的工作不能够充分发挥自己的能力(make the best use of one's abilities)，也不能够提高技 能和增加经验(improve skills and gain new experience) 换工作(switching jobs)可以发展多种 技能(acquire a wide array of technical skills),丰富个人简历(enhance the resume),提高个人的 市场价值和工作稳定性(improve marketability and job security)，有助于收人增加 (pay raise);
• 竞争激烈，如果不主动增加技术和经验(improve skills and experience levels),稳定的工作机 会就会很少(continued employment will be meagre),很容易在竞争中失利(vulnerable to the competition);就职业生存而言(in terms of career survival)，没有高枕无忧的空间(there is no room for complacency);人应该懂得接受挑战，把握机会(take on new challenges and seize opportunities),这才是理智的职业选择(a sound career move);
• 离开目前的雇主(leave the current employer)会绐自己一种新的期待(a sense of anticipation), —种新的学习热情(generate an enthusiasm to learn)。
• 对自己的职业发展弊大于利(do more harm than good to one's career);需要付出努力去适应新 环境(adjust to the new environment)，不能够与新同事和上司处好关系(get along well with new colleagues and supervisors),有可能被他们视为威胁(seen as a threat)，工作表现不能被轻易认 同(readily being recognised);
• 频繁转换工作反一个人的低承受能力和对雇主的低忠诚度(reflect badly on the job candidate's resilience and loyalty),缺乏工作动力(lack of self-motivation),没有目标(directionless/aimless)， 没有足够时间获得经验和技能(gain experiences and on-the-job skills)，因此雇主不愿意聘用 经常换工作的人，担心很快又要重新招聘(restart a new recruiting process)。
In this fast-changing world, job-hopping (leaving the current employer for another employment opportunity) is not a rare scene. Much has been discussed about the gains and losses of such a career move. In my opinion, job-changing is an inevitable step in today's labour market, reflecting the nature of a modem society.
A new job implies opportunities for career development, an objective many working people intend to achieve. In general, there are two reasons behind a job holder's motive for a new job. The first is that the current job cannot make the best use of his or her abilities. The second is that he or she cannot improve skills and gain new experience. Both can lessen the possibility of a brighter job prospect.
Job-hopping, meanwhile, assists one to survive the keen competition. People are living in a fast-changing world and a. once stable job is now vulnerable. Willingness to stay on the same job is no longer valued as much as before. Any employee, if complacent about the current employment, would be faced with threats posed by others. By comparison, taking the initiative to obtain a better job can at least drive people to increase skills and thereby improving the chance of continued employment.
When job-hoppers are craving for new chances, some issues are particularly worthy of concern. The first is adjusting to a new environment, such as working with new colleagues and supervisors. Besides, while valuing a job hopper's resume, employers too often tend to suspect his or her loyalty and resilience. It is therefore imperative for every potential jobseeker to learn the new employer better and evaluate the potential risk.
The above-mentioned facts give one a glimpse of the potential results of changing jobs. When the willingness to change a job and seize an opportunity represents a sound career move and provides the thrust for self-development, it might require a job applicant's extra efforts.
