I received many replies about the unfairness of using short duration on
jobs as a criterion for screening resumes. These replies have pointed
out several facts:

1. Corporate downsizing and bankruptcies account for many short-term
2. In certain fast-paced areas of the country, corporate recruiters may
actually view long-term job stays as "grass growing under the feet."

I think these facts are compelling and will certainly influence my
decisions. To be defensive for a moment, job duration is only one of
several criteria we use, and by no means eliminates someone if most of
the other criteria are met.
