I have but one question for you: Are you a web professional? If the answer is yes, then take The Survey for People Who Make Websites.
I could go into the whys …
- Our industry is still young and we need to know more about salaries, titles and roles.
- In order to negotiate for a raise or a salary for a new job, knowing industry averages is invaluable.
- It is still unclear (even within our industry) what job titles go with what responsibilities.
- According to the news, the economy and job market is in the shitter. Would be nice to know how much this is affecting web professionals.
- If you are looking for a good job, might be nice to see where other professionals are geographically and what they think of their location.
- There are gender issues that seem to raise their ugly heads at conferences, events … all over the place. How much are these issues actually affecting web jobs? Professionals' perceptions of opportunity?
- And let's not forget about race or disability. How much do those issues affect web professionals?
- Thinking about going to school to get some web education? Why not see how important today's web professionals feel their own educations were.
- You're already in vacation mode anyways, so why not kill some time.
But it is ultimately the fact that this survey is the only source of data about the web as a profession. And you want that data to be as accurate as possible, so it can work for you. Right?
Then take the survey. Nuff said.
