Can you afford to holiday from your job search on a holiday weekend?
Yes, you can. (And should!)
You might vacation, you might have extended family meals and you might have friends hosting house parties. Enjoy them all and keep these tips in mind.

I’d like to make JobMob much more useful for you.
This census is for regular JobMob readers and subscribers. The people who get the most benefit from JobMob.
Why do a census?
To make JobMob better for you and for me.
If I know who you are and what you want, it’ll be a lot easier for me to help you. And when I know that you’re successful thanks to JobMob, JobMob is more likely to help others find success as well.
Will this take a long time?
No. The required questions are all multiple choice except for one, and that’s a one-word answer.
There are also a few optional questions – which I hope you’ll answer too – that are more open-ended, but if you’re pressed for time, just do the required ones.
