Smartphone ownership in the U.S. grew from 45 percent in 2012 to 61 percent in 2013, according to research conducted by the Pew Internet & American Life Project. Smartphones are now a normal way of life. People use them to bank, shop, text, call and access social media. The possibilities of what you can do with them seem to be endless.
That includes job hunting. Did you know that research shows that over 65 percent of those looking for a new career are using some type of smartphone or other hand-held device to search? It’s expected that this percentage is going to rise above 80 percent in the three to five years.
Making sure your recruiting website is mobile ready is key, based on this research. Improving overall recruitment efforts to ensure you’re catering to everyone searching for employment is important. There are many benefits to offering a mobile ready website:
Simplify Communication – Why tie job seekers to a desktop computer or landline phone when applying for a position or waiting for a response? Make things convenient for them! Offering a mobile website will offer a better experience for both applicants and those recruiting.
Enhance Experience – Mobile websites are appreciated by employment seekers because they’re able to search while carrying on with their busy life. Busy job seekers appreciate mobile ready technology, such as optimized career sites and applications, that respect their time. Ensuring that a candidate can easily learn more about and apply to your organization via their mobile device can help the job seeker have a more positive overall impression of your organization and typically results in a better candidate experience.
Savings – Did you know that you’ll be able to save time and money with a mobile ready website? Streamlining the process of recruiting with a mobile website will help with various expenses. You can also utilize this to your advantage by offering video interviews, as well. This can cut down on travel expenses that you might have to pay for when potential employees are based out of town.
Social Media – You’ll want to keep your company up to date and easy to access. In addition, marketing your brand on social media will help candidates learn more about your business and further their interest in working for you.
There’s no reason you shouldn’t want to improve your recruiting efforts and attract excellent new candidates for open positions by offering a mobile friendly website!
