JobMobile Boston panelist talks about how 'paying it forward' can really pay off in the recruiting business.  

By Steve Kasmouski

handshakeFor recruiters, HR professionals and hiring managers, finding top talent requires more than just posting ads, making phone calls and sending emails. In today's world of information overload and technology abundance, in-demand professionals are doing everything they can to avoid constant solicitation from recruiters. And who can blame them? Regardless of your profession, it is likely that you have had a bad experience with a narrow-minded recruiter who claims to have the ticket to your dream job without knowing the first thing about you. These conversations lack what is most important: the candidate-recruiter relationship.

Mobile recruiting strategies from top industry leaders at JobMobile Summit

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.
