    CBS This Morning’s “Work In Progress” series (with LinkedIn) reports that “fall is the best time to find a job.” 

    According to LinkedIn, October is the month with the highest number of job openings on its website — with 89 percent of hiring managers filling those positions in less than four weeks. 

    LinkedIn Editor-In-Chief Dan Roth told CBS that Mondays are the best day to apply for a job. 

    “A lot of hiring managers spend the week getting their job descriptions ready,” says Roth. “Monday you start the week off, put your job description up, and wait for the resumes to start coming in.”  

    The first 25 applications are three times more likely to land a position (compared to those later in the queue). 

    “The real key is making sure that you are out there with your profile, that you’re sharing, that you’re talking about what you're an expert in, that you’ve got your skills listed, that you’re networking with people,” says Roth. 

    October is a terrific time of year to promote “Free Resume Critiques” to prospective clients and publicize the offering via news releases to local media, an e-mail campaign, and posts on your social media platforms. 

    It is important to give jobseekers the tools they need to succeed.

    BeAResumeWriter.com strives to provide toolbox-ready resources you can use to help your clientele as they navigate the job search process. 

    “If you are just relying on a piece of paper, you're doing it wrong,” says Roth. “The most important thing is to be out there.” 

    LinkedIn also published a blog post talking about the autumn job search process titled “A New Holiday to Celebrate: Fall Hiring Season.”
