Imagine you’re looking for your next great job and have an entire day to dedicate to job searching. How should you plan out your schedule? When is the best time to apply for jobs, and when would the best part of the day be to work on your resume? What is your most productive time of day, and which are the best hours to work on the more challenging aspects of a job search?
The latest research on the science of timing tells us that not only HOW but also WHEN you complete certain tasks throughout your day plays a big part in how successful you’ll be. For example, exercising in the morning may help you lose weight, while exercising in the evening may help you perform your best. Our effectiveness tends to plummet in the midafternoon, whereas our minds are sharpest in the mornings and most creative and receptive in the evenings.
