There’s No Better Day To Begin Your Job Search Than Monday

The data shows you’ve got great odds at the start of the work week. TGIM!  You know it’s time. The job you’ve been in the last few years has lost its luster and you’re looking for a new challenge.

So let the new job search begin! Which day will give you best chance at finding that new gig?

According to Monster data, the majority of new jobs posted during the week is on Monday (22%).

“It’s a great time to look for a new job,” says Deanna Hampton, a principal market research analyst at Monster. “While we see most job search activity after the New Year, great times to look for a new job are also in September and October before the holiday rush. Employers are poised and ready to hire after typical slow hiring months in the summer season and after summer interns head back for the fall semester.”

Something also to consider … job seekers conduct their searches on Mondays (18% of all monthly job seekers). The Monster data also shows the majority of job views happens on Monday (17%).

The peak time of this activity happens between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
