MOBILE JOB SEEKERS
WORKPLACE TRENDS #1: MOBILE JOB SEEKERS
HR Project Manager | Sr. Recruiter
Amazingly, 89 percent of job seekers report that they use a mobile device to seek jobs. Moreover, nearly half (45%) say they use their mobile devices specifically to seek jobs at least once a day. With so many job seekers using a mobile device to search for a job, it is essential for employers to focus on this preferred method of recruitment to create an ideal candidate experience, and garner savvy employees.
DON’T JUST BE MOBILE-FRIENDLY
Extensive scrolling, links that are too small to even touch – overall, an unpleasant experience. It is time to invest in creating a career site that is optimized for the mobile user. Two out of five candidates say that their view of a company is negatively impacted if a career site is not mobile optimized.
SIMPLIFY THE APPLICATION PROCESS
This also means that lengthy behavioral and personality quizzes should be eliminated. Create an easy-to-use application that job seekers can complete without having to be in front of a computer. A well-versed recruiter or HR Specialist doesn’t need as much information as you might think to select qualified candidates that are ready for a first interview.
SAY YES TO THE VIDEO INTERVIEW
These video interviews allow job-seekers to showcase their skills early on in the interview process. While this shouldn’t necessarily replace the in-person interview, it is an excellent method to initially screen job-seekers.
TAKE IT UP A NOTCH
Currently, only 20% of Fortune 500 companies have a mobile-optimized career site. Regardless of the size of your company, you can have a competitive edge with job-seekers by upping your game with mobile optimization. With more people constantly moving around, working on-the-go, it’s time to start promoting opportunities in the best possible way.
