Does the Day of the Week Matter When Applying for Jobs?

0

Dear Experts,

I read most responses for job postings are on Mondays and Wednesdays. Will responding on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday get more attention? Weekends?

Here is how the T.A.P. experts answered this question:

@keppie_careers Q#143 Quality of materials, ability to connect your value to their needs R key no matter when U apply.

@juliaerickson Q#143 Tues & Thurs my fave days 2 apply: Thurs b4 wknd, cd get 2 it Fri; Tues, Monday crush over. FU same days.

@dawnbugni Q#143 Not exactally sure about rezs, but suggested to send eletters Tues/Wed a.m. 4 highest click through rate.

@jtodonnell Q#143 – Monday is bad, hiring managers mindset is not best after the weekend – Tuesday early morning is best.

@ValueIntoWords Q#143 Suggest avoiding Mon/Fri – send Tues-Wed-Thurs (ideal), but there is no magic bullet.

@kgrantcareers Q#143 I agree w @jtodonnell go for Tuesday. Mondays – ppl have 2 sort through weekend and Friday’s unfinished stuff.

@dawnbugni Q#143 Not exactally sure about rezs, but suggested to send eletters Tues/Wed a.m. 4 highest click through rate.

@beneubanks Q#143 Being in HR, I’d say that it doesn’t matter. Hiring mgr is always swamped. Applied for my job Mon 8AM.

@keppie_careers Q#143 I do not suggest worrying about gaming system, there is no one RIGHT way/day that works for all.
