A recruiter told me that it takes 17 interviews to get a job. I have never heard of that statistic. I know people who have been out of work for over a year and I am sure they have been on more than 17 interviews. Has anyone heard of a stat like this? The only thing I have heard that it now takes the average person 6 months to find a job, and that is up from 20 weeks before this recession started. Which I think that needs to be ajusted upward again as many people on this board talk about running out of unemployment benefits.
