Everyone knows the best time to apply for a job is . . . when your current boss isn't looking. So try to distract them next Monday.
According to a new study, people who apply for jobs on Mondays have the best chance of getting an interview . . . BY FAR. The theory here is that resumes pile up by the end of the week, so ones that come in on Monday get the most attention.
People who apply on Tuesdays have the second-best success rate. People who apply over the weekend do the worst . . . especially people who apply on Saturdays. (Yahoo)
