Almost Half of You Interviewed in 2009

It might have been a tough year job-wise, but nearly half of you scored at least one interview this year — 43 percent of you, to be exact. Good news that most of you were on the job hunt, and landed one to five interviews through the whole of the year, either unemployed and actively job-seeking or maybe just looking for a new position to shake things up.

In any case, it was great to hear that most of you were out there winning over recruiters, and while about 36 percent of you reported no interviews at all, it was also a good year to stick to with the job you know. In this job market, it may not have been the best time to look for something new, and opting for job security is always a good career move.

Still, 13 percent of you were real movers and shakers this year, gearing up for five to ten interviews. We're hoping these meetings led to the job offers you wanted, and if not, we're wishing you all career success in the new year — keep at it. Each interview is a learning experience and a step closer to getting you the job, happy interviewing in 2010.
