Today is only Tuesday and it already promises to be a busy week! “The Voice” made its season premiere last night, March Madness is well underway, and we are just two days away from JobMobile New York, TheLadders’ celebration of innovation and strategies in mobile recruitment. Throughout 2013, this unique, nationwide series of events will bring together recruitment thought-leaders in four major employment hubs: New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and Atlanta.
Google predicts that more than half of all job applications will come from mobile devices within the next 18 months. Now, with the explosion of job seekers turning to their mobile devices to pursue searches while on-the-go, TheLadders is urging our more than 35,000 employers to integrate mobile technology into their recruiting strategies or risk missing out on the country’s best talent.
To help share their companies’ best practices and recruitment secret recipes, my team has tapped industry thought-leaders from some of the most innovative companies, all based in New York City where TheLadders is headquartered, to serve as panelists:
Melissa Enbar Director of Recruiting, BirchBox
