I usually reach out on Tuesday mornings. Nobody wants to work weekends, Mondays suck, and people spend Friday thinking about the weekend. Also, there’s a free gmail plugin called Streak CRM that can keep track of when someone views your email.

Write your emails over the weekend. Send them all out during the weekday.

I think recruiters and hiring managers realize people job hunt on the weekends.

Write emails at night or weekend and schedule to send during the day. I usually send in the late morning. After the initial morning email batch and not late in the day so they'll get to it. Boomerang is an add on for gmail where you can schedule send times and I've found it to work well. Good luck in your search!

would love some advice on the best times to reach out to recruiters and apply to jobs while working full time, in order to avoid my emails/applications getting lost in the mix and/or contacting a recruiter at an inappropriate time.

If I know someone well it’s a 24/7 job. Juniors and mid levels are weekday but I will look at after hour emails and will respond at night if I can. As has been said above you can write emails over weekends or late at night and send them at 8.00am weekday if it’s your first contact with that person. Don’t email people you don’t know on weekends would be my general rule.

Boomerang all your emails!
