- “Eighty-two percent of out-of-work job seekers reported having a recent job interview, compared to only 51 percent of employed job seekers.
- Fifty-two percent of unemployed job seekers reported having one interview in the past month, compared to 32 percent of employed job seekers.
- Thirty percent of unemployed job seekers reported having two or more interviews in the past month, compared to 19 percent of employed job seekers.”
Who would have thought! I am still convinced that it is easier to find a job while employed. However…it makes sense, we are all a lot more available for interviews that are convenient not only for us but also for the interviewer. Also, the unemployed have time to make the job search their full time “job,” whereas the employed can only dedicate so much time to networking, searching for and applying to jobs and…going on interviews.
There aren’t many opportunities to have a leg up over other employed candidates so follow these three easy steps to get ahead:
1. Stay in the Loop
2. Keep Confidence Up
3. Decide to Stay Positive
