Dialed In: Mobile Recruiting and The Candidate Experience


If there’s one thing I really, truly hate about using my smart phone, it’s when I go to look up some basic bit of information (should be easy enough), and get stuck playing a little game that I call “the mobile hokey pokey.” I’m pretty sure you’ve played it before; if you own a cell phone, then this should sound pretty familiar.

Here’s how this game goes (although since there seem to be no real rules, this might in fact be a misnomer).

You put your address in, you pull a shit site out, you squeeze and pinch the screen, and turn it all about. With the mobile hokey pokey, you want to scream and shout…this ain’t what it’s all about.

Remember to tip your waiters for that one. But seriously.
