More Than Half of You Interviewed in 2008

There were job interviews galore in 2008, as 67 percent of you suited up for at least one interview this year. Slews of layoffs pushed some of you to job search, while others questioned your happiness in your current roles and decided to see if anything better was abound.

Approximately half of you estimate that you went on one to five interviews, which surprises me because hiring managers are said to have adopted prolonged interview processes as the economy has worsened. Perhaps the number suggests a need to take the first job offered because of uncertainty in the job market, or maybe you're just awesome interviewees that hiring managers can't resist!

A large 33 percent of you didn't go on any job interviews this year, and hopefully this means many of you are in relatively secure fields. Here's hoping that 2009 brings interviews to those who need them, and that those of you who are currently employed don't find yourselves back on the interview circuit.
