We like the quality over quantity approach. If you can apply to five jobs a day and do a great job with the application and the resume, then that’s fine. If you find that the quality of your submissions declines at this number, then five per day is too much. Also, you should be focusing on jobs that you want to work at, rather just any old job. By refining your search, you are going to end up putting less hours of work in on your job search, and your going to find more quality interviews and then job offers come your way as a result of this.
