The days of working for one company your whole career, and retiring with a gold watch, are gone.
In fact, they've been gone for decades, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The study, which has been tracking the careers of nearly 10,000 baby boomers since 1979, found that the average boomer changed jobs nearly a dozen times between ages 18 and 48. The most rapid job hopping happened early on, with those aged 18 to 24 switching employers nearly six times. By their 40s, boomers had settled in and switched a little more than twice in a decade.
