When it comes to employers posting job vacancies, it looks like the early bird catches the worm.
The latest edition of employment data firm DHI's hiring indictor shows job adverts posted earlier in the month, and ideally on a Monday or Tuesday, are more likely to attract a higher volume of applications.
"The average daily flow per vacancy on Monday and Tuesday is 44 per cent greater than on Friday and four times greater than on Saturday," it said.
"In summary, job seekers are more active in the first three weeks of the month, and they are much more active early in the work week. Recruiters and hiring managers may find it useful to consider these temporal patterns in job seeker activity when deciding when to post online job vacancies."
