Recent surveys reveal that about 70% job seekers use their mobile devices to find a job. Another interesting revelation is that about 23% mobile searches contain the keyword “job”. These two figures clearly explain why all employers need a mobile recruitment strategy.
The sad truth is that still a majority of employers don’t have a mobile hiring strategy, which makes recruitment even more challenging for them. If you too haven’t been doing mobile recruitment so far, then you must get started as soon as possible.
Here are few useful tips to consider for great mobile recruitment results-
Use an ATS that comes equipped with a native mobile app
Use of ATS for recruitment is not new, but ATS with a native mobile app is a relatively newer concept. It is essential for recruiters to stay connected with the potential applicants, as engagement is the key part of the recruitment process. But it is not feasible for recruiters to carry a laptop everywhere. ATS with an integrated native mobile app is an easy way to directly engage or contact candidates.
If you haven’t already switched onto one with a native mobile app (like True Talent), you might want to do it now.
Your mobile application process must be tested
You must yourself use your smartphone to go through your mobile recruitment process in order to analyze the application experience. It will help you improve your mobile recruitment process.
Make sure you have a responsive career page
Your website’s career page is another important part of your mobile hiring strategy. So, you must ensure it is responsive and compatible with different screen resolutions.
Mobile recruitment is a user-friendly, intuitive and time-saving. With an exponential growth in mobile usage, now candidates prefer to apply for jobs through their mobile devices. Mobile not only makes job application easy but also helps recruitment managers to conveniently engage and communicate with potential candidates. If you don’t already have a mobile hiring strategy in place, it’s high time you define it.
