背景提示

It is acceptable to most companies for employees to hold 2nd jobs, as long as there is no conflict of interest involved. You cannot work for another company that is a direct competitor, or offer equivalent company services on your own. Some jobs are more lenient, e.g. waiters/ waitresses.

对于大多数公司来说,在没有利益冲突的情况下,职员另找一份兼职是可以接受的。不过千万不要为直接的竞争对手工作,也不要利用职位之便谋取个人利益。但有些工作比如侍者又是另一说。

重点句型

1. I can't hold a job down. 我不能老被拴在一个工作上。

2. He's always in and out of jobs. 他老是跳槽。

3. She's always changing jobs. 她老是换工作。

4. That guy has a new job every week/ month/ .... 这家伙一个星期/ 月换一个工作。

5. He just can't keep a steady job. 他就是不能安心地在一个地方工作。

文化差异

Some people change jobs out of necessity, but too much movement may indicate to potential employers to think you are not a stable worker. Companies often want people who will stay around for a while, so they can get some return on their training investment.

有些人换工作是出于无奈,但频繁地换工作会让有些公司觉得你是个没有常性的人。没有哪个公司希望所雇的员工刚工作不久就离开公司的,因为他们不希望在员工培训上的投资付诸东流。

English Text

What: Terms about people who change jobs often.

Who: Are you a steady worker? Is one job enough?

Where: In the workplace, most often.

When: Coffee break, lunch break, ...

Why: Some people can't stay in one place.

Back at work the following week, John overhears discussions about another employee who has jumped ship to work for another company in the valley. Why do people change jobs? Is one job enough?

Frank: Morning, Ken. Morning, Mira. Ah, the sweet smell of coffee.

Mira: Nice and hot, Frank. Can I pour you a cup?

Frank: Thanks. So, I heard Jason isn't with us any more.

Ken: Left yesterday. That guy has a new job every few months.

Mira: He's working for another company in the valley, I understand. He's lucky to keep finding jobs.

Frank: Apparently, he gets off one job and goes straight to another. Been doing it for years.

Ken: Sooner or later, the fact that he's a real job jumper may catch up with him.

Frank: I agree with you. Most companies think twice before hiring someone who can't hold a job down.

Mira: On the other hand, I have some friends who can keep a steady job, but have trouble making ends meet with one job. One of them has worked two jobs for years.

Frank: That's OK. But some companies frown upon moonlighting, especially when there is a conflict of interest involved.
