What do you consider to be a "short duration"? Less than a year? I'm
looking for a new job (permanent, as opposed to contract) and I'd like to
make sure that I'm addressing any misconceptions that potential employers
have. I've been at my current job for one and a half years, and my previous
position was for two years. My current job is a (long-term) contract that
was only supposed to last for six months, and my previous job ended because
the division was closed. Should I be concerned that employers will
interpret these job durations as short?
