In the modern job market, candidates expect to be able to search, view and apply to jobs right from their smartphones. As a result, mobile recruiting has become a hot topic among businesses, especially those who are just starting to ramp up their hiring efforts.
Smaller companies may be on the fence about investing in a mobile-optimized hiring process, but if you want to draw in today’s top talent, you’ll need to reach them where they are. Business News Daily spoke with HR and recruitment experts about why recruiting has gone mobile, and how you can make it work for you.
Take a look at just about any industry and you’ll see the effects of mobile adoption. Banks, retail stores and even health care companies all have their own mobile apps, making it easier for consumers to stay connected. Recruitment is following this trend, too, to make the application process simpler and more convenient for candidates.
