Emptier Pockets For A Third Of Us
According to a survey conducted by the career management firm Graham Holland, almost a third of white collar workers changing jobs during the last year took pay cuts. The firm places the blame on a lack of professional consultation, but then they would do that. We blame the economy. The survey also found that two thirds of job seekers used the Internet in their search, and suggested that the Internet is likely to play an even larger role in the future. The Internet serves as a handy tool for researching a company prior to an interview - as well as a medium for networking. Even strangers can provide helpful advice when approached via the web.
