18% of people apply to MORE than 20 jobs

A recent study from TipTopJob.com of over 1000 jobseekers across the UK found that 18% of respondents apply to more than 20 jobs when looking for a new job.

This huge statistic reflects the difficulty of finding a new job in the current marketplace and highlights that people, in their desperation to find work, apply to job after job after job.

The survey also found that 35% of respondents apply to 1 or 2 jobs and 20% apply to between 2 and 5.

Mike Dauncey, CEO, comments, “We are all aware of the difficulty in finding work at the moment, but the most important thing for jobseekers is to remain positive (no matter how hard that may be) and ensure they are only applying to those jobs that are most relevant and practical for them. There is no point applying on mass and just hoping for the best as not only will this upset the recruiter, it will make the jobseekers feel worse about themselves with unnecessary rejections.”
