Just curious to know your total experience and how many companies have you worked for till now. Another interesting data here would be the longest duration you had in single company.
If you share your country that would be great too

Here's my data

Total Experience : 5.5 yrs
Companies worked for (including current) : 4
Maximum time spent in any company : 2.2 yrs
Country : India

Looking forward to your participation

Distinguish between Contract/Consulting jobs and Full-time Permenant jobs. Contractors are forced to change job every 3 - 12 months.

I took me 25 years to start the job where I have lasted the longest, 5.5 years so far. Before that, the "records" were 4.66 and 4 years.
