Why your recruiting needs to go mobile

Posted by Amanda Augustine

May 08, 2014 @ 08:42 AM

You can’t look at a recruiting blog or attend a conference these days without hearing about mobile recruitment, and with good reason.

Social_Media_Mobile

While many other industries jumped on the mobile bandwagon within the past five years, the recruiting and staffing industry has been slow to embrace this new technology.  In fact, only five percent of the Fortune 500 offer a mobile job-application process (according to iMomentous’ Corporate Mobile Readiness Report), despite the fact that one in three job searches are performed on a smart device.

Still not convinced that mobile deserves a place in your recruitment strategy? Consider the following:

Responsive web design: The one question for businesses to consider

JobMobile NYC panelist shares his organization's transition to a mobile-responsive website.

By Jay Woodruff

Affinity_Resource_GroupHere’s the only question you need to answer in deciding whether to move to a responsive-designed website:

Do you want to stay in business?

About two-thirds of Facebook users now gain access via mobile devices, and for sites like Pandora and Instagram, the number is approaching 100 percent. As more and more people migrate to mobile as their primary access to digital information, you can't afford to not put your best face forward on portable devices.

At Affinity Resource Group, our recruiting practice focuses on digital technologists, so for us the move was a no-brainer. And still we dragged our feet. Our website is important, but it is not our primary revenue driver, so during those first couple of years we were focused on establishing relationships, attracting clients, and making placements.

Revolutionize the way you find top talent with TheLadders’ app.

Between sending emails, calling candidates and checking their social networking pages, recruiters spend a lot of time on their phones. So why is it that such an integral part of the job – sourcing candidates – hasn’t been mobilized? Enter TheLadders.

The app strives for three things: To make your candidate discovery effortless, to show you the most relevant candidates, and to make it fast and easy to directly connect with them, no matter where you are.

JobMobile panelist talks about the need to modernize your entire recruitment process to be competitive in today's candidate-driven market.

By Scott Bass

Technology is continually changing the way recruiters and HR professionals interact with candidates every day. Social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter have become a rich source of passive candidates; top professionals that are typically employed. But is it enough to simply be present on social media? If the goal is to hire exceptional talent, there has to be more - and all signs point to mobile recruitment as the latest tool in connecting with top candidates.

HubSpot thinks your “careers” site is broken

If it ain’t broke, why fix it?

By David Fernandez

HubSpot_LogoSo there we were, the HubSpot recruiting team, sitting around a large conference room table. We were prepped with ideas for solving a problem that to most people didn’t seem like a problem at all.

Let me explain.

recruiter gets an approved headcount. He meets with hiring managers, asks some important questions, then creates the job description. Finally, he publishes it on the company website. Shortly after he blankets the web with said job description. Done. He waits, with fingers crossed. The thing is that this works for generating tens, and in our case, hundreds of resumes but it doesn’t solve for fit. See? We were just marketing our jobs and not US, not our culture. We didn’t just want new employees who could do their jobs extremely well, we also wanted new employees who wanted to be a part of our culture. But how could they learn about our culture without experiencing it firsthand?
