A surprising 12% of job seekers apply for jobs from the comfort of their bed, according to new research from Madgex.
The study also found 30% of job searches are carried out during the daily commute to work, although few people opt to apply for a job at this time.
The key factor in this activity is our increasing reliance on smartphones, iPads and tablets, which have changed our relationship with the internet. These changes have had a dramatic impact on the way job seekers search, research and apply for a new position.
To understand how people use job boards, Madgex carried out a Job Seeker Behaviour study, using a diary study and combination of analytics. This information has given valuable insight into what users do, when they do it and why.
