Best Time and Day to Apply for a Job

I’m very sure every job seeker had had that moment of contemplating whether or not to send an application.
You find yourself thinking whether you should;

  • Apply now or wait till morning?
  • Apply on the weekend or wait till the next Monday?
  • Apply early in the morning or wait till now?

    The truth is, the time you send out an application is an important determinant of whether you will get a response.
    It is important to apply when the HR or recruitment officer can find and review your application.
    Have in mind that your application can be covered by tons of other mails if you send it at the wrong time. In such a case, you won’t get a response.



When Is the Best Day to Apply For A job?

To answer this question, we spoke with recruiters and industry experts, and here is a summary of our findings.

  • Never apply for a job in the evening or night, except the recruiter requests that or application expires that day.
  • Do not send your application during the weekend (Saturdays and Sundays). Most companies don’t open on weekends and your application may have been covered by other mails before Monday.
  • Don’t send your application too early in the morning. Except to beat a deadline.

    #The best time to send your application is from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
    #The best days to send a job application are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

    Hope this helps. Please share with others.
