TalentWorks recently completed part three in a study on the science of job search.

The job search can feel like one big Catch 22: “How the hell am I supposed to get experience if I can’t get a job to get experience?” In fact, after analyzing a random sample of 95,363 jobs, we discovered that 61% of all full-time “entry-level” jobs require 3+ years of experience.

Valuable learnings for employers in this study.
