Q) Why have you changed jobs so frequently?


A) Employers are reluctant to invest time and money in bringing job-hoppers up to speed.  This needs to be a short answer; dwelling on it only makes interviewers probe for more.  Cataclysmic events of recent times might mean you can honestly say,  “Not by intention, I’ve just been caught up in the upheavals and layoffs of the last few years.”  Your reasons for leaving each job need to be carefully thought out in advance so you can give the reasons briefly.
