Harlingen, TX (Vocus) September 14, 2010
According to Larry Keim of Harlingen, Texas, job seekers who earn from $60,000 to over $100,000 annually have a longer search cycle due to their income levels.
Fox Business News’ Eric Bolling recently reported that the average job search takes up to 35 weeks, on average. However; managers, professionals, and executives have a prolonged search cycle due to their income levels and their age. According to a USA Today Newspaper article, an executive earning $120,000 annually would take about 15 months (60 weeks) to land his/her next position, earning at the same rate.
Keim has done a study on the rate at which the upper level job seekers obtain new work. The study included only the managers, professionals, and executives that have received professional career search assistance. “The difference is astounding,” says Keim.
Larry Keim says, “Executives on average, earning up to 120.000 are taking from 44 - 60 weeks, depending on their age to land a new job; according to national news source USA Today. That same class of job seeker, with professional assistance is taking (on average) from 26 to 36 weeks to land a job.”
That would mean that their search cycle is as much as one half as long as those who do a search on their own. A job seeker earning $80,000 annually will save over $20,000 in lost income for every three months of search, by getting job search assistance.
Larry Keim lives in Harlingen, Texas and follows the trends of executives in job search. His website, http://www.larrykeim.com is currently under construction.
