    Sure, I don't mind sharing. I do think tenure matters some, but there are other factors as well. But, my short(er) stays never were an issue when securing a position (I know a lot of people worry about this).

    1. Content Developer. Only here for 10 months. Wasn't a design job, but was planning on switching teams with the help of my boss. But, we lost a multi-million dollar client and my whole team (~30 people) were laid off. Like I said, this wasn't design, but it was the last time I felt like I was really really good at my day-to-day job.

    2. Nashville Designer. Stayed for 1.5 years. Felt like a lot longer. This is were I got the basics of design down.

    3. UI Designer/Creative Director. 1 year 10 months total. Learned most of what I know here. CD for about 3 months or so.

    4. Senior Designer. 3 months and counting, and I really want it to be loooong term. So that's the plan.
