Is your business looking to hire some new people? Still looking for some last minute retail staff for the holidays? Are you trying to attract the widest and most qualified group of job applicants? It can be pretty difficult to find the employees you want quickly—try asking an HR head sometime. But the thing is, so many companies really shoot themselves in the foot when it comes to getting the word out about their job openings. It’s almost 2014, and a HELP WANTED sign isn’t going to cut it anymore. And half-hearted online posts on a few websites like Monster aren’t going to be enough, either. So how can you skate to where the puck is going to be, rather than where it is? The answer is mobile. Mobile career pages and mobile job applications.
Quick—what happens if an interested job seeker visits your careers website on their Android device, iPad, Kindle, or iPhone? Do they see a mobile-optimized site? Okay, but can they do anything with it? The future is here now. There are more than one billion job searches being performed on some kind of mobile device—and that’s per month. So if you want the most advanced and tech-savvy applicants possible, you really need to have the right technology yourself.
