Millennials / More active in their job searches than older seekers

A study by the hourly employment network Snagajob revealed that millennials, once accused of being the laziest generation ever, are more ambitious in their job searches, re-engage in the process at a faster rate and apply for more jobs compared to older job seekers. Over the past year, younger job seekers increased their job application volume by 6 percent, compared with workers over age 45, who applied for 9 percent fewer jobs.

Millennials also are doing a better job of restarting their job search process after taking at least three months off. The research shows a 7 percentage point increase in the number of job seekers under age 24 reactivating their job search, while older employees saw a 3 percentage point decrease.
