Q: Friday is the best day of the week to do this. What is it?
A: Apply for a job.
According to the data, recruiters are busiest looking at resumes on Wednesdays and Thursdays, with nearly 40% of CV searches carried out those days. Meanwhile 34.5% of all applications by job seekers take place those days.
On Fridays, however, the proportion of resume searches to job applications rises to a high, with two resume searches per application taking place. That compares to 1.5 to 1.7 searches per application for other days of the week. This suggests that Friday is the best day to grab a recruiter’s attention because there’s less competition from other people applying for jobs.
