This is a survey about unemployment in the Information Technology sector. The survey will be stopped on January 31, 2003. You need not be a New England resident in order to participate, but you do have to be in the US. The more participants in the survey, the better the information. Already, 3,132 people have participated, from all over the United States.

PS It was good to know that many experiences are not atypical.
