56% of UK job seekers are using their mobiles when job hunting, according to a recent poll by leading job board CV-Library.
The findings highlight that it’s more important than ever for recruitment businesses to stay ahead of the game and ensure their services are mobile friendly.
The Development Team at CV-Library have focused on mobile innovation throughout 2013; launching an updated mobile App, configuring the mobile site with Dropbox to allow candidate’s to upload their CV straight from their mobile and rolling out mobile responsive pages across CV-Library.co.uk.
Lee Biggins, Managing Director of CV-Library: “Mobile innovation cannot be ignored, especially within the online recruitment industry where candidates and recruiters continually require instant and easy access to a pool of jobs or CVs. As job seeker behaviour continues to change it is the responsibility of the recruitment industry to stay up to date as we have done in the past.
“As job adverts moved from newspapers to websites a decade ago, now we need to introduce mobile services to ensure we’re engaging with all candidates across the UK.”
In September 2011 CV-Library was the first job board to launch a mobile App that allowed candidates to search and apply to jobs directly from their mobile. Future innovations include the integration of cloud storage solutions Google Drive and SkyDrive, alongside Dropbox, which will allow candidates to upload their CV straight from their mobile, and a new generation of SMS notifications including web links.
