Attract top candidates through mobile recruiting

Posted by TheLadders

December 05, 2013 @ 09:45 AM

To find the best talent, recruiters must optimize their talent acquisition strategies for the mobile candidate.

Social_Media_MobileA recent Jobvite survey found that 75 percent of the American workforce is comprised of job seekers. Of these job seekers, 77 percent take to their mobile phones to get leads on potential job opportunities. With individuals increasingly relying on mobile devices to job search, recruiters and hiring managers need to follow suit if they want to get the best candidates. As demonstrated in our JobMobile event series, it’s easy to talk about mobilizing recruiting strategies, but actually implementing them can be a challenge.

Here are three mobile strategies that you should take action on immediately to engage and recruit top talent.

Mobile recruiting strategies from top industry leaders at JobMobile Summit

Posted by TheLadders

October 16, 2013 @ 04:27 PM

Speakers from JobMobile Summit share their perspective on the challenges and benefits of mobile disruption in the recruitment industry. 

As a mobile-first technology company, TheLadders is dedicated to bringing job seekers, employers and recruiters into the mobile era with ease. Job seekers have already accepted mobile technology in the search, with 84 percent saying they’d use their smartphone to find a job. Talent acquisition, however, has not embraced the mobile shift with the same fervor. This disparity between groups could lead to missed opportunities for recruiters who aren’t including mobile strategies in their recruiting.

TheLadders began hosting local JobMobile events throughout the country in early 2013 and held its first national JobMobile Summit this past September to discuss the mobile disruption in recruiting. The summit was a great success, and attendees heard from – and interacted with – national thought leaders on the subject. Below are a few of the top innovators we heard from and their take on the mobile shift.

We recently sat down with U.S. Cellular's Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition, Courtney Jorgensen.

jm-courtney-jorgensenCourtney, we talk a lot of about the importance of cultural fit. How do you pre-screen prospective candidates for cultural fit? 

In HR and recruiting, we are the vanguards of our culture and we identify and acquire talent that demonstrates the values and behaviors of our Dynamic Organization, while also ensuring they possess the requisite skills for the role.  Regardless of function we utilize relevant customized selection tools that align to our organization’s, and role-specific competencies either leveraging technology for candidate prioritization, an online assessment and/or behavioral-based interview tools.
