First Ever Seattle Job Sector Survey

We would like to invite you to be part of a significant new initiative to unearth measurable data about the sentiments, challenges and aspirations of King County businesses and present them to decision makers at all levels.

To do this effectively we need realistic and comprehensive information that we can share. That is where you come in. We encourage you to take a few minutes to complete the first ever “Job Sector Survey.” You can access the survey at It should take less than 10 minutes to complete. You are encouraged to forward this survey on to your business associates so they can participate as well.

Responses from the survey will support a broader public discussion about business conditions and provide substantive information about the best ways to keep and grow our job base. Please be assured that none of your responses will be directly attributed to you or your organization.

As added incentive to participate in this survey, the Seattle Chamber of Commerce will draw one lucky winner from all who complete the survey for Southwest Airlines Green LUV tickets. (If you supply your contact information)

About the Job Sector Survey Project

The Job Sector Survey is supported by more than 30 business organizations, including the Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA), as well as the regional Prosperity Partnership, King County, the City of Seattle’s Office of Economic Development, Urban Enterprise Center and the Washington Research Council.

The survey aims to collect data from as many King County employers as possible. As a result, you may receive notification of this survey from other organizations. While that approach helps to gather as much data as possible, it also created the potential that you may get this survey from multiple sources. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and hope you understand that a larger pool of respondents will make the information derived more valuable.

Should you have any questions about the Job Sector Survey, please contact Chamber SVP George Allen at (206) 389-7268. George can also provide a hard copy of the survey if needed.

We are excited about this project and believe it will be a powerful tool to educate key decision makers on the critical needs—by sector—for our local businesses to succeed. I hope you will agree and participate.

A special thanks to Southwest Airlines for their donation of tickets to our effort. There is NO charge for survey participation.
