Similar situation as experience
Experience in my life… I have 9yrs exp, for these 9yrs I shifted 5 companies all are raised different situations like…
1-Company: - small company they depends on only one client,client shifted other vendors company asked layoffs to all the employees.(this is first situation)
2- Company: - Due to urgency of the first company layoffs, I got the immediate offer other city and I joined, due to location consider, I started searching job for my place (this is second situation)
3-Company:- I got the offer for my place, then immediately joined. But due to recession time 3rd company notice to the employee’s layoffs, then again I started searching new job(this is third situation)
4- Company:- After layoff immediately I got the offer other company, but in this company my carrier path going different way like my experience in automation testing but this company people asking me to work on Data Stage developers, then I though shift to another company(this is fourth situation)
5-Company: - I got the offer, I joined another company, but here also lack of projects…….no carrier path(this is fifth situation)
Above all situation I got unexpected things expect 2-company.Now am planning to settle down some other good company, but every HR asking above situation, its very difficult answer to all these questions.
Even more people thinking shifted all this companies expected good hikes /position. But in my situation different even I didn’t good hikes/position………
As a my knowledge and technical skills am getting calls from outside companies and am clearing all technical interviews also only HR discussion am getting all this situations…..
How I need to rectify the above things……
Kishore, I don't think I understand what question you are asking.
I also do not clearly understand what is being asked.

My question is, in my 9yrs experience shifted 5 companies all are different situations (above explained).When I was attending interviews HR people are asking why shifted with in 9yrs 5 companies but am trying to convince but they are not understanding my unexpected situations.. But each interview I am clearing technical discussions, Only issue in HR round.
So how I need to solve this issue?
You've been job hopping, with 2 redundancies and 3 chosen moves in 9 years. You can't really solve that, you could stay where you are now for a few more years, so you get a CV that shows you're willing to stick at a company for more than 18 months. You could explain it's stability you're looking for and somewhere to put down roots. Make sure your next move is to somewhere you will be happy to stay for more than two years. Have you thought about contracting?
Interviewers look for a "theme" when analyzing resumes. When I see someone have many jobs in a short period of time, I try to understand "why".

Is this a person who gets bored easily?
Is this person a victim of a bad economy?
Is this person hard to work with, and has been forced out repeatedly?
If you finding that you are technically qualified, but rejected for other reasons, try to look within yourself. Understand why you've had so many different jobs, and find a way to express it to the interviewers. Look for a discussion that can assure the interviewer that this new job can be the one that will last longer.
On the other hand, if you decide you are the kind of person who doesn't like long-term jobs, perhaps contracting would be better for you?

Not sure what your problem is.
You can stay at one place (if possible) and get good vertical experience or you can move about and get broad experience.
I prefer the later, most jobs get stale after about 2 years or less, unless that job has good opportunities and variety.
