Wednesday’s looking like an awfully good day to post a job.
At least that’s what you glean from job-distributor eQuest, whose data indicates a lot of U.S. job-seekers are hunting on Wednesdays, as well as Tuesday and Thursday. It studied more than a million jobs posted online to see when candidates searched and sent in resumes.
