The Best Way To NOT Get The Job
I saw this article recently on theladders.com about the best and the absolute worst times of the day to submit an online resume and it rung a bell for me. When I was looking to change jobs at different points in my career, I would submit resumes at all hours of the night/early morning. It’s no wonder I heard back from exactly ZERO of those employers. According to this article if you were purposely NOT trying to get the job you couldn’t pick a better time to email your resume or or submit a job application. Apparently the best time to apply or submit your resume is before 10am, there are even better and best days of the week to apply too! Definitely something to consider during your next job search.
If this is by design or an impulsive reflex of corporate HR departments, I think they could be missing out on some great talent. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
