It’s one thing to look for jobs online, but are employees going beyond that? In a lot of cases, the answer is yes.
As proof that people are job-hunting more often, 15% of the total number of people we surveyed have updated their resumes in the last week. Nearly one-quarter of respondents -- 24% -- updated their resumes within the last month, with 17% claiming they spruced up their resume at some point during the last three months. That means well over half our respondents have spent time refining their resumes within the last quarter.
Twenty-three percent update their resume every 6-12 months, while it’s been more than a year for 21% of those surveyed.
