Let’s discuss some of the data we have collected recently via our weekly LinkedIn Polls!
Over the past few months, we have been posting weekly poll questions on our LinkedIn Page. These questions covered topics like current technology, resume tips, interview preferences, fun holiday plans, future career goals and more. This time around, we will discuss the results we have received on our tech topic polls in recent weeks.
Weekly polls have been a great way to gage what our LinkedIn audience is interested in. It helps us learn what their thoughts are on new technology initiatives and what they really think about the tech they work with every day.
Q1: Will you be looking for a new role for the new year?
A whapping 58% of those who voted said that, yes, they most definitely are planning to look for a new role in 2023. Whether that is in the same industry & position or not, we can’t confirm. But, it sounds like the majority of voters are not currently happy in their role. AP Professionals is working to change that narrative! Let us help you find a role that fulfills you so that next time around we can get the majority to vote “Happy Where I Am”.
Q2: What makes a techie’s resume stand out in the competitive job market?
This result had a close call for 1st & 2nd place, however, experience in a specific technology ultimately won! Voters believe that the best way to stand out is to gain as much experience as possible in a technology of your choosing. Instead of having general knowledge of all, a deep dive to become an expert in one would be your best bet!
