Did you know (according to a recent LinkedIn survey) that 64% of active candidates search for open jobs with a mobile device and 45% of candidates apply for jobs using their mobile device? However, only 20% of companies have a mobile optimized career site. Mobile recruiting technology is not a fad. Candidate adoption rates continue to grow year over year and most companies lose candidates in the application process because they haven’t prioritized implementing a mobile friendly talent acquisition strategy and candidate experience.
In today’s frenetic fast paced world, candidates are increasingly using their mobile devices to research your employment brand and look for career opportunities during their commute or quick breaks away from the office. Candidates don’t have the patience or time to view a career site that doesn’t conform to their device, with slow loading pages or videos and an archaic application process comprised of job descriptions that aren’t mobile optimized, answering a never ending list of questions and uploading their resume. When reviewing your career site a candidate's expectations include; a mobile responsive career site that renders to their device with quick loading pages, streamlined description of your benefits and culture, mobile optimized job description and simplified apply process with minimal fields to fill out and the ability to apply with their social profile or an uploaded resume from cloud storage.
