A recent CareerBuilder study found that employers are falling behind when it comes to mobile recruitment adoption.
Only 20 percent of Fortune 500 companies have mobile-optimized career site. The numbers are even worse when it comes to the health care industry, as only 11.6 percent of hospitals and 5.6 percent of assisted living facilities have mobile-optimized sites. Staffing firms fared slightly better, where 33 percent have mobile-optimized career sites. The finding underscores the opportunity employers have to engage more mobile candidates at a faster rate than their competitors – if they work now to create a recruitment strategy that aligns with consumer behavior.
Touch is the new frontier for job search. Mobile and tablet users expect to see jobs information in a visual way that reflects the visual approach of the overall Web. This is especially critical in a time when mobile job search is exploding and companies are missing out on talent because they’re not mobile-optimized.
