Recruit the right candidates via mobile channels using mobile recruiting!
Mobile Recruiting refers to strategies for recruiting personnel via mobile devices. This is an important topic that every company should deal with, as 80% of young jobseekers take the use of their smartphones for granted. But how does your company implement Mobile Recruiting? How do you grant your applicants maximum comfort with minimum effort for the company? And what advantages does Mobile Recruiting offer over conventional recruiting??
The mobile optimization of your career page is a first, essential step. In this way, you reach significantly more applicants – and thus increase the chance of recruiting top candidates. Furthermore, it is a great opportunity to improve the employer branding of your company, as the Absolventa study “Generation Mobile” shows:
The study proves that with mobile optimized career pages you achieve a significantly better applicant approach, which leads to more candidates deciding to apply.
Interesting is the fact that 53 percent of jobseekers surveyed would apply on the move if the application possibilities via mobile devices on career pages were better. As a company, you can assume that the mobile applications submitted include applications that would never have been possible without a mobile application option. In summary one can say, who wants to be noticed in the future particularly with the young generation of the job seekers as attractive employer, does not come around a mobile optimization of the own job advertisements and application ways around.
The use of Internet-enabled devices is becoming increasingly diverse. Notebooks and desktop PCs are still at the top, but the smartphone is catching up strongly. A trend that companies should take into account when designing their career areas and job advertisements in the future. This means that a generally higher number of applicants can be expected, as it will be easier to apply by “one-click”.
Make sure that your company’s Internet presence is mobilely optimized so that job seekers are not frightened away on their first visit.
Benefits for Human Resources Managers
One of the biggest advantages of mobile recruiting is that potential candidates can be reached anywhere at any time. This leads to more efficient recruitment.
It is especially interesting (and increasingly important) to address applicants who belong to the so-called Generation Y. Mobile Recruiting can be used to address these and other potential groups of people in a targeted manner.
Smartphones and apps everywhere
The use of smartphones and apps simplifies our everyday lives in many ways. Whether we want to use delivery services, book concert tickets or simply retrieve sports results, the smartphone is always at hand. Recruiting apps and mobile recruiting software have long been used to recruit personnel. Since there are now a large number of individually usable offers that can also be used sensibly and inexpensively by small and medium-sized companies, this method of recruiting is no longer reserved for large corporations that develop HR software in-house or have it developed in-house.
How your company can use Mobile Recruiting
In principle, there are two forms of mobile recruiting for your company: You can either optimize your website mobile, so that it can also be accessed conveniently via your smartphone, or you can use your own app, which is often associated with significantly higher development and support efforts.
