While leaving a job too soon can be great for your pocket, mental health or your family, leaving too soon can also put you at a disadvantage for future prospects.
Job hopping can be a strategic way to move up in your career, but prospective employers might look at your resume with one eyebrow raised. After all, they want to hire someone who will commit to their company.
Pirate coach leaves after one game
This week Josef Zinnbauer on Monday resigned as Orlando Pirates head coach with immediate effect, just one game into the 2021/22 season. He’s had a very short stint as a coach this season.

He departs having lifted the 2020 edition of the MTN8 while guiding Pirates to third place last season, securing a place in the CAF Confederation Cup.
