Median time to find job lowest in 3 years

The time it takes to get a new job in the United States has shortened to 3.7 months, its best level in more than three years, a report said Thursday.

Sounds good to me....however, if I were the one that was out of work for 3.7 months, I don't think I'd have any hair left.
The median job search fell 12 percent in the fourth quarter, indicating employers have resumed job creation after an uncertain summer, the Challenger Job Market Index shows.

In the third quarter, the average jobseeker needed 4.2 months to find employment.

The data was based on the quarterly survey of 3,000 job seekers by the Chicago-based outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
