THE BEST TIME TO ADVERTISE YOUR JOB

Data from CV Library has revealed the best time to post your job ads

CV Library has released market insights this week that can help TA teams determine when to post their job adverts – depending on the industry they wish to recruit for.

Findings show that, generally speaking, job adverts get most views on a Wednesday and the least views on a Sunday. But when it comes to applications, Monday is the most popular day, with both weekend days being the least common for applications.
