Career strategy coach Pegotty Cooper came across a funny coincidence at one of her recent counseling sessions for association executives. Several of the session participants had been in their current job for 17 years.

“Or a multiple of 17—in one case, they had been there for 34 years,” Cooper said.

Such longevity in the same position did not surprise Cooper, who spent 15 years as an association executive (including leading a state-level industry group in Florida) before becoming a career coach.
