We know, we can't believe it's not Christmas yet either.
With a whole week to go until offices close for the holidays, you'll no doubt be looking for ways to pass the time without actually having to do too much work. Fear not, for we have the perfect solution.
The Develop and MCV Salary Survey gives you the chance to express your views on work conditions, employment opportunities, pay and more in the games industry – and it's completely anonymous.
The survey is open to anyone in the games market, whether you're a developer, publisher, retailer or services company, based anywhere around the world. It only takes five minutes to fill out (although we're sure you can stretch that out if you need to).
You can take part in this year's survey by clicking here. The deadline for all comments is 6pm on Monday, January 6th, 2014.
The survey covers everything from salaries and bonuses to how you see your career evolving and whether or not you're tempted to move overseas in search of new employment.
The results will be printed in the February issue of Develop, with deeper analysis to follow online. Meanwhile, our sister magazine MCV will report on the data in a separate issue in the new year.
Both magazines are preparing special issues dedicated to recruitment in 2014. For more information on the recruitment advertising opportunities in Develop, please contact Alex.Boucher@intentmedia.co.uk or Katy.Bensley@intentmedia.co.uk, or call them on 01992 535647.
