The Why & How of Mobile Recruitment

Social & Mobile Recruiting

Mobile Recruitment

Mobile career sites are an important part of recruitment strategy for 2014. A study by the undercover recruiter found that at present 50%  of career sites are not optimised for mobiles. This means that potentially 50% of companies that are hiring for a role are hindering the application process resultantly decreasing the number of applicants that apply.

Not only is your mobile recruitment website the ideal platform to relay information about your company and your vacancies, but it is also a fabulous place to communicate with your potential applicants too. The perks of mobile recruitment from a job seekers perspective are as follows: you can do it anywhere, immediately, discretely and conveniently.

According to another study by the undercover recruiter, 72% of active job seekers use their mobile to view a company career site and 64% use their mobile to browse social media for jobs, so it has never been more important to embrace this technological recruitment shift.

Flat Fee Recruiter launched its mobile-friendly careers website earlier this year to ensure our clients get the most out of their recruitment strategy.
