DEAR ABBY: I'm a millennial, and it seems these days people stay at jobs for only a few years before moving on. That has been my experience in the past, but now I'm in a position that's fulfilling and where I am creatively satisfied.
All my friends are always looking for their next gig, but for once, I don't feel that way. They keep sending me job postings they think I would be interested in, which would be right up my alley if I was looking, but I'm not.
How should I respond? Does it say I'm lacking motivation or goals if I don't have the desire to leave the company where I am currently working? In this day and age, is it OK to stay longer at a company, or does that actually hurt your resume? Does it show a lack of drive? -- SEEKING GUIDANCE
DEAR SEEKING: Many millennials move from job to job because they don't like what they're doing or don't have the creative satisfaction you do, as well as other factors. Remaining with a company you like, being appreciated and fairly compensated for what you do, should not create a black mark on your resume. It's a sign of stability.
In terms of a resume, it's not just your work history that has importance or value, it's also your acquired skills, your community participation and relevant hobbies. These elements let potential employers get a well-rounded view of the person who's being hired.
