Dan Miller of the 48 Days web site had some helpful advice for job seekers when it comes to scheduling job interviews.
Here's his post...
"Research shows that 83% of executives are more likely to hire AM job seekers. And 70% of all hiring decisions are made before 11:00 AM. So obviously, if you can help suggest the time of an interview, make it before 11:00 AM.
"Avoid Mondays and Fridays. On Monday, people tend to have too much to do and on Friday they are anticipating the weekend and ready to get out of the office. So the very best times for interviews are Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday mornings between 8-10:00 AM. The little things can tip the scale in your favor."
You have to be a bit dubious of how statistics like these are obtained, but it seems worth considering. And, by the way, now's a good time to listen to my conversation with Wayne Messmer about how to have a successful job interview. Click below to listen.
