Today’s top candidates are using their mobile devices to tweet, share status updates, and edit their LinkedIn profiles, according to a whitepaper from iCIMS.
Citing a report from SimplyHired, iCIMS writes: “Sixty percent of job seekers use social media as part of their job search.” The whitepaper recommends that recruiters broaden their social media recruitment initiatives: “Candidates who find your jobs on their mobile devices want to stay on their mobile devices, which is why mobile-optimized job postings, career sites, and portals are essential to keeping candidates engaged.”
According to Pew Internet Research, 68 percent of the American adults surveyed use their cell/smartphones to access social networking websites. This factor brings iCIMS to the conclusion that “the [corporate] online recruiting experience needs to be designed with the mobile user in mind.”
