Marketers on Demand: Despite the Economy, Employed Marketers Will Explore New Jobs if the Price is Right

3 out of 4 marketers at the director level or above would consider new job opportunities if it comes with increased pay

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - A recent online survey of over 459 marketers conducted by Marketers on Demand (MoD) found that marketers currently employed in Canada are still willing to explore new opportunities, despite feeling concerned about job security. In fact 3 out of 4 marketers at the director level or above indicated that they would consider new job opportunities if it comes with increased pay. "This is good news for hiring managers looking to hire top talent that are currently employed" said Craig Lund Director, Client Services at Marketers on Demand. "Many of our clients have expressed concerns about being able to attract top talent, assuming that these individuals would be reluctant to leave existing positions."

The survey found that marketers looking at new opportunities valued 'increased compensation' and 'increased job scope' over 'job security', which ranked third in the list of choices. These findings provide valuable insights for hiring managers to design roles and incentives that will successfully attract these candidates.

The survey also explored the question of 'job security' looking at various career levels. It was found that respondents at the mid-level (Managers /Senior Managers) indicated the highest rate of concern for job security compared to senior (director or above) and junior (entry level/ coordinator) level respondents.
