New Study Reveals Job Seekers Search For New Gig During Morning Commute

mobile phonesIf you’ve ever looked for a job during the day at the office, you’re not alone. According to a new survey though, a growing trend involves job surfing during your morning commute.

Per a new study from TheLadders, more job seekers are looking for new opportunities on mobile devices than a desktop. Plus, mobile users are 34 percent more likely to go onto their site between 6 and 10 a.m. compared to going onto their desktop.The survey also revealed mobile users are more likely to hop online to look for a new role over the weekend compared to desktop users. And mobile users check out 20 percent more jobs each week than desktop users.

So, suffice it to say, we should all be using our mobile devices more frequently when job hunting! It also makes it less obtrusive during the day. Instead of using your company’s web browser to do the hunting, using a personal device makes it just that — more personal.
