The guys at Volt workforce solutions have produced this intriguing infographic, looking at the types of email client different US professionals use when applying for a new job.
As with the email viewing habits infographic we posted yesterday, it’s worth remembering that these results may not match those of your specific email list – the sample here is people using email to apply for a new job – but there’s some interesting takeouts:
- The big three webmail clients own almost 3/4 market share (remember that these can all be viewed on a mobile, so that’s not necessarily 3/4 of the market using a browser)
- IT, Technical and Creative workers are more likely to have Gmail than Yahoo Mail, but conversely more than half of light industrial users prefer Yahoo.
- Accounting and finance professionals are 60% more likely to use Aol than other users.
- People who are educated at an university level are more likely to use Gmail than Yahoo, however a large amount of those educated to high school level use Yahoo Mail.
