Survey Results from Our Last Issue
SurveyLast issue, we asked our readers: "How many months have you been actively looking for a new position?"

We had asked the same question in our February 2011 newsletter. The results, as reported in the March 2011 issue, revealed the following:
 
    • 31% for 1 to 3 months • 20% for 7 to 12 months  
    • 20% for 4 to 6 months • 29% for more than 1 year  
  To see how that has changed, we asked the same question again in our last newsletter.

Here are the survey results:
 
   
22% of respondents said they have been looking for 1 to 3 months
22% of respondents said they have been looking for 4 to 6 months
16% of respondents said they have been looking for 7 to 12 months
40% of respondents said they have been looking for more than 1 year
