How long do job seekers view the job ads? "Even when subjects determined that an opening was appropriate for them, reviewing the actual requirements for the job appeared to be a low priority — results showed they spent only 14.6 seconds, on average, in that section. Applicants spent the most time reading the job description (25.9 seconds) and the company description (23 seconds). In addition, participants' eyes tended to skim the job description rather than read it closely, and often skipped the bottom section of the description entirely."
