I think less than 1 year at a job consistently will look bad on your resume (or CV), especially all those less than 1 year jobs is at different companies.

For most developers, it takes average of 3 month to become productive on a new code base.

From a hiring manager perspective, they'll think two things:

  • The person is really bad, and get fired all the time.
  • The person is really hard to keep around, as soon as we spend the resource train him, he'll jump ship.

of course, if it is internships, it is expected every 3 to 6 month. that is ok.
