The day you submit your resume might be the difference between you being called for an interview and you not getting a response.
A study by bright.com, a job search site found that applicants were more likely to be called for an interview if they sent in their resume on a Monday.
The study by bright.com analyzed more than half a million job applications and found that one out of three people who applied on a Monday got called for an interview.
Is there a worst day of the week to submit your resume? The answer is yes and the study found that Saturday was the worst day of the week to apply for a job with only about 14% of applicants getting called for an interview.
So is there any logical reason for Monday being the perfect day to apply for a job? In a report by ABC News, Jacob Bollinger, a senior analyst at Bright.com explained that Monday applications are more likely to be perused while the week is fresh. But as the days go on, resumes can pile up and simply collect dust on a recruiter’s desk.
So make sure you submit that resume on a Monday.
