Remember 2010? Yeah, it was a tough year for talent advisors. I wasn’t hiring anyone, either.
Mobile recruiting could have been huge in 2010, but most of us didn’t need to hire employees, so it became an expense we couldn’t afford. The economy in 2015 is entirely different, though, and mobile recruiting just jumped to the top of your talent acquisition “budget priority list.”
LET ME SHOW YOU WHY YOU NEED TO START CARING ABOUT MOBILE RECRUITING:
* 86 percent of active candidates use their smartphone to begin a job search.
* 70 percent of active candidates want to apply via mobile.
* 55 percent want to upload a ‘resume’ to your career site.
