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.
