Take The Survey

I took it and so should you; The survey for people who make websites

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.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
