Analysts of the Avito Rabota service have found out how quickly residents of Central Russia find work.
The survey involved 10 thousand people over 18 years old, 68% of whom are working, and 32% are not.
Job search terms
Most residents of the Central Federal District (29%) take more than a month to find a job. At the same time, the results of the survey showed that some find a suitable vacancy very quickly: 13% spent one day looking for a job during the last employment, the same – no more than five days.
It’s easier to find a job quickly in a small town than in a big one. In Moscow, the lowest percentage of those who found a job in “1 day” (9%), in cities with a population of less than 100 thousand, the proportion of such respondents is about 15%.
The terms of employment depend on age. Applicants from 18 to 24 find work easier for a period of 1 to 10 days, citizens 45+ mostly look for a suitable place for more than a month.
Among the residents of the Central Federal District, 18% of respondents found work very quickly, and another 20% rated the search duration as fast.
What prevents you from finding a job quickly
Women often associate failure when trying to find a job with insecurity at an interview: 10% of women and 6% of men noted that the job search took longer for this reason. Also, Russians pointed to insufficiently detailed job descriptions (17%), the lack of an opportunity to communicate with the employer by phone (13%) and poorly written resume (6%).
Most of the respondents from the Central Federal District were looking for a job by profile (30%) or any job (29%) and also noted that the availability of more vacancies would speed up the search. 23% of respondents shared that they would find a job faster if they received more invitations for interviews.
