Eliminati August 2016 Job Survey

We did a brief survey of our members in August. 41 out of 323 Members took the survey, so only a 12% response rate.

Extrapolating, it seems that only about 15% of us have gotten a new job since the layoff?   There seems to be about an equal number who have started their own businesst.  I heard from a few people asking for that option to be added, so the Other option includes some of those responses..

Job Fairs seem to be somewhat mixed on results, at least from this survey.

41 / 323 Members responded

The flood of applicants in the market, in my opinion, has given the whole job and hiring process a bit of a chill.
Relative Pay? I had to take a substantial pay cut with my new job.
How the new job compares to the old one. In my case the pay is much lower and I have no health benefits.
Questions about pay scale for those who have found new jobs.
Success (or lack thereof) working with recruiters.
How would you rate your current or ongoing job search?
I am relocating from Oregon back to Massachusetts
