The Shift Toward Mobile Job Applications: Reach Users On The Go

With the amount of internet search time spent on mobile devices steadily increasing, it’s no surprise this trend relates to job hunting. In fact, 9 out of 10 job seekers say they’re likely to use a mobile device during their job search in the next 12 months, according to a Glassdoor survey conducted in May 2014.

What does this mean for your small- to mid-sized business’ recruitment needs? It means applicants need to be able to easily apply to your jobs any time, any place. With a mobile-friendly career page, you can drastically open up your candidate pool by capturing an even wider selection of talent to choose from.

As a growing number of job views come from a range of devices, it’s essential for businesses to target mobile job seekers. An innovative mobile-friendly system lets your business post mobile responsive jobs, giving candidates the freedom to apply right from their smartphones.
