Careers literature claim that employees are increasingly experiencing more mobility across organizational, functional, and industrial boundaries, which shows the changing career patterns. However, several authors state that there is little empirical evidence to support those claims. This study therefore aimed to compare the first ten years of the careers of chief financial officers in order to investigate the changing career patterns such as inter-organizational, inter-functional, and inter-industrial mobility between 1990 and 2000 cohorts in Turkey. The data was obtained from LinkedIN profiles. The results demonstrated that the 2000 cohort made significantly more frequent inter-organizational, inter-functional, and inter-industrial moves in the first ten years of their careers than the 1990 cohort. The results also revealed that career patterns of the 2000 cohort were more complicated than the career patterns of the 1990 cohort.
