You need to almost extend the time period out a bit more. I know it took me 2-3 years of applying for jobs to get in eventually. I'd be curious if people found they had to have a longer period.
you're missing the option "i didn't apply, i just had job offers in the mail" =)
the results are interesting so far. 34% taking longer than 3 years to find a job is surprising
It took me about 7 months to get the phone call from Pandemic half way through last year.
It was a great place to work, but unfortunately all too brief (for well published reasons). It took me about another four months before I found my second job.
Well done tho those who were able to score straight away.
In reflection of my first job:
From the time I started posting a completed folio to getting the job. I'd say it took 4 months.
keep in mind though. the interview was done on the 2nd month. it just took 2 more for all the bits and bobs to pass through before I could officially work.
It took me about 6 years to get into the industry, from sending my first batch of applications all over the world to squeezing my foot through the door of a local QA department. Persistence and luck play a part in scoring any job, but I'd strongly advise newbies to network with people in the industry. They will be more inclined to give you a leg up when junior positions become available, and might make your journey less drawn out than mine.
Wow, you've certainly got my admiration for sticking it out for so long!
Damn man... and I thought I slugged it out for a long time. I graduated from QANTM and it took me 4 years (had to relocate to Melbourne too :P )
