Despite a troubled U.S. economy, 25 percent of job seekers believe they’ll find jobs within two months, according to Challenger, Gray and Christmas.
The firm surveyed 500 people during December and found that the overall confidence about the job market is higher than last year.
Only 16 percent were as confident in 2006.
About two-thirds of respondents said it would take three to six months to find a new position.
A fourth quarter survey of 3,000 unemployed job seekers showed a median job-search length of four months.
