It's the week before Christmas, the clock is slowly ticking towards your last working day (too slowly, in fact) and you have time to reflect on the past year.
Are you where you want to be, or are you stuck in a rut? Are you earning enough? Have you taken on new responsibilities and vow to work that little bit more efficiently in 2013? Why, oh why, is it not Christmas yet?
Sadly MCV doesn't have the answers - only you do. But to help you find them, and to help the time pass, we are once again running our annual salary survey, exploring the trends and attitudes of the jobs market in time for 2013.
The survey is open to anyone in the games industry and developers from across the UK, Europe, North America and around the world are invited to take part.
To take part in the survey, click here or see below – we'll be collating the answers after the Christmas break.
Our survey consists of questions covering everything from salary and bonuses through to whether or not readers are confident about the year ahead – and we guarantee it will help your last working week pass quicker. By at least five minutes.
We also plan to revive the popular Jobs In Games online special that we ran on MCVuk.com in September: one month of jobs profiles, insight from recruitment experts and tips on how to get that perfect job. Contact Jennie.Lane@intentmedia.co.uk or James.Batchelor@intentmedia.co.uk to find out how you can get involved.
Results will be printed in upcoming issues of MCV and our sister magazine Develop that will be are dedicated to recruitment in January.
