Executives Finding Jobs Faster

ExecuNet recently released research indicating that the average time for an executive job search has been declining steadily since 2004. For executives at director level and above, candidates reported that it is taking approximately 9.5 months on average to obtain a new position, versus the high mark of 12.8 months in 2004.

On a related note, ExecuNet’s 2008 Executive Job Market Intelligence Report found that for the third year in a row the South/Southeast and West Coast regions of the country have produced the most senior management jobs. The Mid-Atlantic region (especially Washington, DC), which had placed third as recently as 2006 now does not even appear in the top 5 regions. Following the South/Southeast and West Coast are the Southwest (including Texas), Midwest, and Northeast/New England.
