Confidence is Up: Most CEOs are Bullish About 2012

Vistage, an international CEO group that I belong to, just released their latest quarterly CEO Confidence Index.  I took part in this survey of executives which gauges their optimism for the upcoming 12 months.  They ask questions like how many jobs are you planning on adding and when, are you projecting sales growth, and other things that check the pulse of what’s going on in executives’ minds.

This time, even with the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) continuing its slide, the CEO Confidence Index is trending upwards.

This means that most CEOs are optimistic about the next 12 months. That’s excellent news for job seekers because it reflects the fact that executives are projecting better times ahead.  Couple this with your new years resolutions and you’ll have a very lucky 2012!
