Based on a recent ExecuNet survey of 122 executives, job search now takes 4.9 months, down from 6.8 months reported in January 2005. In fact, during the past 30 days, these executives have averaged 2.9 interviews. This has spurred executive confidence.
“The employment market has made a quiet comeback during the last twelve months,” says Dave Opton, CEO and Founder of ExecuNet. “As the growth in new job opportunities becomes more apparent, an increasing number of employed executives are starting to explore their options for advancement.”
After all the downsizing, restructuring, and cost containment of the past few years, "advancement" is a nice place to hang around for awhile. I wonder what qualities will rise to the top as those being sought most by hiring authorities.
