Candidates who apply for a job at 9 am on a Wednesday are more likely to be OFFERED an interview within 24 hours, research by Job Today concludes.

Research by UK’s number one hiring app, Job Today, has discovered that the best time to apply for a job is 9 am on a Wednesday.

More than 17% of employers post new job advertisements on a Wednesday.

Wednesday was also flagged up as the day almost half (47%) of jobseekers were invited for an interview within 24 hours of the job being advertised.

Job Today, the fastest growing mobile hiring company in the world for casual jobs, monitored employee postings and usability of job seekers over a three-month period between April 2018 and June 2018.

The research unveiled that jobseekers are statistically most active at 1 pm, with Millennials leading the way as the most active job seeking generation.

Job seekers under the age of 25 make up a third of searches sorted by position, demonstrating that young people are the most certain of their desired job role.

Furthermore, only 3% of under-25s base their job search on locations close to home, demonstrating that millennials are more willing to move home or travel for their career.

Co-Founder of Job Today, Polina Montano, has advised job seekers to start their job search early in the day for the most success:

‘Our insight shows that by lunchtime on Wednesday employers will start to receive a flurry of applications.’

‘I would always recommend being enthusiastic and start early in the day to look for a role whilst others might be having a lie in,’ recommends Montano.
