Poll: How Did You Get Your Last Job?

There's no shortage of advice on how to land a job, and if you're looking today, you've probably heard it all and tried more than one approach, from searching the web for openings, to connecting with friends or former colleagues both online and off, to reading the help-wanted ads in your local paper.

Last year, we took a poll that asked how people got their most recent jobs. We're curious to see if the answers have changed in a year's time, so we thought we'd ask again.

Please take our poll and, if you have a story about how you found your last job, share it in the comments below.
