Best Time to Email Your Resume

​There's not an exact science to scoring an interview but you can increase the odds by sending your resume at the optimal time.

According to a study​, almost 24% of emails are opened within the first hour of being received. So when applying for a job, keep in mind when the potential employer is most likely to check their inbox. Most messages are sent in the morning, so those sent in the afternoon have a better chance of being noticed and opened.

The study also found that sending your resume on Monday gives you the best chance of getting an interview and Saturday gives you the worst chances.
