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 newest mobile offering, "TheLadders Recruiter," was built to save you time and revolutionize the way you recruit; enabling you to find top talent while on the go. 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.

Announcing TheLadders 2014 ELITE: New York City

TheLadders unveils this year's ELITE recruiters for the greater New York City area. 

logoAs a pioneer in the recruitment industry, TheLadders has worked with employers around the country to find the right person for the right job. While we aim to make the process as easy as possible, we recognize that job-matching success relies heavily on a committed hiring team, and with more than 65,000 recruiters and employers in our network, it’s safe to say that the level of commitment varies from professional to professional.

That said, it is important for us to recognize and celebrate the people who contribute to our success in each of our key markets. Early last year, I announced the launch of a new program for employers -- TheLadders ELITE, which initially kicked off in New York, and expanded to San Francisco and Chicago, Atlanta and Boston. The program celebrates a short list of exceptional employers in our most popular recruiting markets, representing the top 1% of our users. Each ELITE employer is hand-selected, based upon their TTM performance (Trailing Twelve Months, immediately prior to the list’s announcement), while demonstrating outstanding citizenship within TheLadders’ community.

This month, the program comes back to the Big Apple. Most New Yorkers would agree that if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. When it comes New York’s employers and recruiters, the 1% below has gone above and beyond to be amongst TheLadders ELITE. Join us at JobMobile New York to celebrate the 2014 honorees:

Why you 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. [TWEET]
