New October Poll and September Poll Recap

Time for a new monthly poll. We are in the heart of our busy recruiting season right now, and we would like to hear from you, what are the Top 3 resources and factors that influence you the most in deciding to apply for employment with a company?

As for our September poll, interesting results once again. First of all, another great response with over 95 of you participating in our poll. Thanks to all of you who did. What did the results tell us? A majority of you (44%) said that you don't access Facebook at work, only after hours. Even more surprising, 26% of you said that you don't even use Facebook. Really? I thought that a vast majority of our readers would be Facebook users. Guess not. I was also a bit surprised that only 7% of you access Facebook via a mobile device. You hear a lot today about how popular Facebook 'apps' are on mobile devices, the IPhone especially. Finally, 17% of you said that access to Facebook at work was important, but not critical, and only 4% of you said that if a company didn't offer Facebook access, then you aren't working there.

Facebook has become a critical component to how many people interact with each other and stay connected virtually. I myself have made many great connections with friends new and old there, including a friend who I haven't seen in almost 20 years who is coming into town to run a marathon this weekend. The bottom line according to this survey though seems to be that as important as Facebook is to some, most of you who responded to this poll either deal with it out of the office or not at all.

Back to the new October poll, we'll leave this one up until the end of the month. I look forward to more great participation and more interesting results!

Poll requests the top 3, but only allows 1 selection.

Sorry about that. I have fixed and reposted the poll. If you have voted, please vote again.
