Table 1 includes results for: x Full-time employees,   Part-time employees, x U.S. employees, x Canadian employees, x International employees
Note median time is the time spent in the position named when that title was given as last title.
For all other columns, the title is the respondent's current job title.
This table shows what people were doing before starting in their current position.
The title in each row indicates the respondent's current position.
The "Median time for this title as last position" column, however, gives the expected time in this position before moving on. It is taken from the data on
the last position held because there is no other source for this data.
Color code:

Blue highlights the highest values in a column.

Beige highlights the lowest values in a column.

In the "No prior employment" column, for example, blue allows you to quickly see which job titles are most often held as a respondent's first-ever job.
These four titles are the subject of Table 3.
