How Long Does it Take to Get a Job?

One of the most frequently asked questions I get from a college senior is, “How long does it take to get a job?”

The answer:  74.9 days

Within the college hiring process, there are 3 distinct cycle times:

  • Job posting to interview cycle:  38.7 days
  • Interview to offer cycle:  22.9 days
  • Offer to acceptance cycle:  13.3 days

As you can see from these results, patience REALLY is a virtue.
