Is it better to apply to more recently posted jobs than those that are nine or 10 days old?

Question:

Dear Donna,

Should I stick mostly to jobs posted one or two days ago or is my chance of landing a job just as good with a job listing posted nine or 10 days ago?

Wondering if Job Postings Get Stale

Dear Donna replies:

Dear Wondering if Job Postings Get Stale,

Every employer has a different procedure for processing online applications. Some will accumulate applications over time and then review or screen them all at once. Others will review them as they arrive. Either way, I would encourage you apply to any and all positions of interest.

Don’t rely exclusively on online job postings and applications in your job search. Be sure you are getting on the phone, attending live networking events, such as association meetings and career fairs, and being active on social media.

Networking is an effective way to find a job and get hired. Read “Ten steps to a successful job search” (www.Nurse.com/Cardillo/Ten-Steps).

Best wishes,
Donna
