Sending job applications on a Saturday,

  1. Jul 17, 2009 #1

    I'm trying to start my first job/career and I don't have much professionalism experiences. I'm wondering if sending job applications on a Saturday and/or Sunday will be acceptable or I should delay sending applications till Monday as a better option.

    Thank you for your help.

    I doubt most people would be in their office so if you did send it it probably wouldn't get opened/read/etc until minimum monday. Most of us are glad that its Friday afternoon. It shouldn't really matter just as long as it gets there in a reasonable time before the closing date.

    Anytime is fine. Professionalism is about being reasonable, not about following some perceived or suspected cultural taboo or worrying about subtle psychology in everything that you do. You don't want to work for somebody that judges you on what time of day or night, or day of the week, you send an email, etc..

    That's a neat way of putting it, fleem. I didn't think about it like that before!
