What is the best day to send in your resume?
Surprisingly, submitting your job application at a certain day could help your chances of landing the interview.
If you want to increase your chances of landing a job, apply on a Tuesday.
A hiring manager or recruiter is usually swamped with emails on a Monday. As they catch up on all the weekend emails and try to clear out their inbox, you would have a hard time catching their attention. By Tuesday things are back to normal and they can focus on extending job offers.
As a job candidate, take the weekend to update your resume, get your references lined up and watch the job boards for new postings during the beginning of the week, specifically on Tuesdays.
Here are some more tips for submitting your resume:
· Make sure your resume is tailored to the job you are applying for
· Only apply if you meet the job criteria
· Don’t lie
· Add keywords
· Structure your resume carefully
· Demonstrate progress
