6 Apps to Run your Recruiting Firm From a SmartPhone


Research from Potential Park tells us that over 57 percent of job seekers want to search for jobs and engage with recruiters and hiring managers using a smartphone. Yet, the 2012/2013 HR Systems survey by CedarCrestone suggests that only 16 percent of recruiters and 11 percent of hiring managers are using mobile apps for recruitment. This means there is quite a significant gap between the candidate market and the way the recruiting process engages with candidates.

Today’s recruiting process needs to be mobile enabled; and, therefore, recruiters should be able to run their practices or functions from a smartphone if need be. And below, I have set out six critical apps to help you to do this.

As the report above shows, less than 1 in 5  recruiters are using mobile apps for recruiting. With LinkedIn giving you access to nearly 200 million professional resumes from all over the worldand being available on five mobile platformsit is the go to app for mobile recruiters.
