Indeed, the global job site conducted a survey which showed that Australians take 82 days on average to find a new job. The survey conducted on behalf of Indeed by Lonergan Research surveyed 1,371 Australians between 17th and 23rd July.
Indeed issued a report “Job Hunter: The Complete Guide 2018” which showed that 90% of the job-seekers were not aware of all the job opportunities. 3.7 million Australians are not even aware of what job they are looking for when they start.
46% of the job-seekers agree that the interview is their final chance to make a good impression. However, 50% of them admit that they were not well prepared for their interview.
Gen Y job-seekers were far more successful in landing a new job with almost 38% doing so in just one month. Only 30% Gen X and 25% of Boomers were able to do the same.
It took Gen Y job-hunters an average of 67 days to find a new job. Compared to them, Gen X took 98 days while Boomers took 100 days to secure a new job.
Boomers have a tendency of waiting for exactly the right job opportunity which is why it takes them the longest.
The Business Insider quotes Ruby Lee, Job Whisperer of Indeed, that the mental preparation for a new job can be frustrating. Preparing a resume, facing the interview, and wondering if it is the right role can take its toll.
Indeed’s report finds that one-third of Australia’s job-seekers believe that they missed a job opportunity as they did not hear about it in time. More than one-third of Australians were unaware of the kind of job that they were looking for in the first place.
