  1. Dear Caroline,
    Many thanks for this great post.
    Unfortunately you don’t mention that most of the jobs are not permanent and a lot of them are on a consultancy basis (it can also be an article with a more local/national perspective). Another factor that probably influences our decisions is family. Once I was offered a job in a two years contract and I happily joined the organisation . However, after 4 months, the country became very unsafe and I started to feel that bringing my family there would be just a source of great stress and worry. So what were my chances? Finding a new job where I could happily be with my family. Job hoping can also be triggered by social context and job nature changes namely in developing countries and I’d find normal that people keep job jumping in order to keep closer and longer with family.
    And I also can be all wrong.
    Regards,
    Paulo
