This brings up an interesting question:
Which do they view with more weight, multiple short term gigs or one or two longer ones?
I don't think there's any way to definitively answer that. Do they add up to the same total time? Were you bouncing from menial job to job because you kept getting fired? Were the jobs equal in impressiveness just different in duration? Were you changing jobs because something obviously more impressive came available?
My six jobs stretched over 14 years, including undergrad, so it's not like I was working for three months at a time.
