There was an interesting article I read this week on about how employees that change jobs frequently make higher salaries. And I’m talking by considerable margins. A two-year stay with the same company adds up to employees earning less by approximately 50% over their lifetime! Kind of flies in the face of the received wisdom about how to get ahead in the workplace, doesn’t it?

Originally posted on Huffington Post Business Full disclosure I am an only child. That said, I’m reasonably sure that no one wants to be the middle child (insert joke about my last name here).

I’m about to make a “companies are like...
