    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Inspired by the true-to-life story of Frank Abagnale Jr, who managed to give a new meaning to job-hopping, he works as a doctor, a lawyer and an airline co-pilot -- all before his 21st birthday.

    job-hopping = the practice of moving from job to job, especially as a means of quick financial gain or career advancement.

    Thanks for your efforts.
