Job Seekers: What Can you Accomplish in Just 18 Minutes a Day?
Not much. But the Department of Labor reports that the average number of minutes unemployed Americans are spending looking for a job each day is 18 minutes. What can those 18 minutes possibly translate into? Checking one job board, making one phone call, connecting to a few friends and colleagues online, or maybe zapping out three or four resumes to potential employers? If we dedicated just 18 minutes to our paid jobs each day we would surely be on performance counseling or shown the door right away. Why would anyone think that 18 minutes a day translates into an efficient job search?
