Happy Thanksgiving! We here at The Switch are taking a bit of break today, but not everyone is so lucky. A survey from Career Builder reports that 23 percent of workers in the IT industry are spending Thanksgiving with co-workers, whether on the job or not.
Overall, nine out of ten workers told Career Builder that they would rather spend Thanksgiving with family, while just 2 percent said they'd prefer to spend it with their co-workers. (The remainder said "neither.") Unfortunately, Career Builder wasn't able to let us know if the IT industry answers differed from the general population. But we wouldn't be surprised if a few more of them would rather hang out with their peers than field requests for computer help from less technically inclined members of their extended family.
