Further, nearly six out of ten hiring managers (56 percent) say they have hired at least one person in the past three months.

Beta Research Corporation, on behalf of the New York Times Job Market, conducted telephone interviews with 250 hiring managers and 200 job seekers in the New York metropolitan area. Job seekers are defined as those who are currently looking or plan to look for a new job in the next six months.

Two out of five job seekers (40 percent) have received job offers during the past three months. Among those getting offers, two-thirds actually turned down at least one offer. Within this group, one-in-four (25 percent) say they have done so over concern that the prospective employer may soon conduct layoffs.

Other reasons job seekers indicate for refusing an employment offer include:

  • Not enough money 55 percent
  • Company's location is too far from home 24 percent
  • No interest in the company 18 percent
  • Undesirable work schedule 12 percent
  • Poor benefits package 4 percent
  • Required work hours are too long 4 percent
