For as long as I've worked in the software industry (over 13 years
now), I've never had a job that lasted for 3 years. In two instances,
I left the company. The rest of the time, the company folded or rif'd
or got bought and relocated. Once, I was the *last* employee. (and the
only one left!)

Now I'm a hiring manager, and job duration don't say diddly to me.
